Corruption in clinical research: what is it? -- and why it matters

Content Notes


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.
