This survey looked at how senior researchers respond to everyday ethical dilemmas that occur in research with human participants, and how education programs can be restructured to help new researchers effectively solve these dilemmas. The authors conducted a series of 23 unstructrered interviews with senior researchers working with human subjects, to see what strategies they used to resolve conflicts that happened during the course of research. The authors found that the participants used formal guidelines and practical wisdom to resolve these conflicts. The authors conclude that this study shows the need to expand expand the scope of ethics education programs to include a focus on the development of researchers' pragmatic decision making in addition to the formal rules that govern research.
