A case study that identifies ethical concerns
In terms of incentives influencing reasoning for participation, this could be seen in cases where researchers offer monetary compensation or other rewards for taking part in a study – thus potentially introducing bias into the results due to people being more inclined to sign up if they see some kind of reward associated with it. Financial pressures can also motivate people to sign up for trials that they might not otherwise join.
Overall, while offering incentives is sometimes necessary depending on the particular circumstances involved – healthcare providers need to ensure that these are reasonable and not used as a way to manipulate people into participating instead. Additionally, it is important to communicate all risks before signing any agreement. All parties should be able to withhold consent without fear and withdraw from any future agreements.
