Corruption in clinical research: what is it? -- and why it matters
MetadataShow full item record
Despite the seriousness of charging corruption in clinical research, the literature offers little about what corruption means in this setting. This lecture presents a technical/formal definition of 'corruption' in clinical research. I then present examples from the literature which illustrate clear-cut corruption, maybe cases, and non-corrupt deviations from good clinical research practices. I discuss clinical implications about evaluating clinical research quality as well as what corruption means for our evidence base of practice.
