Research-Project and Annotated Bibliography Draft Due Final Due
“[I]n 1932 the normal of voluntary informed consent when based on a concept of respect for the individual’s autonomy that outweighs the beneficence of medical treatment or research was not part of the ethos of American researcher,” asserts ethicist John C. Fletcher.1
For this project you will be conducting preliminary research that explores the tension between the key concepts of medical beneficence and individual autonomy as they relate to the development of public health ethics. Your goal is to read, analyze, and assemble sources that will enable you to effectively apply Fletcher’s four-part framework to making “trans-historical moral judgments,” the topic of your final paper.
Your final work will consist of two products: A research report and an annotated bibliography.
The research report will consist of a 500-word commentary in which you describe your research process. Where did it take you? How did it evolve? How did you select your final sources, and how do you know they are reliable? I should, after reading your commentary, have a solid sense of your research process and the significance of the source material you have selected to annotate.
The annotated bibliography consists of a list of six high-quality sources that explain, analyze, or contextualize the key concepts of medical beneficence and individual autonomy as they pertain to public health research and policy. In annotating the sources, youmust do the following:
Explain why the source is relevant, credible, and promising
Summarize its findings
Identify any experts or other sources cited within the source that would merit further study, or that strengthen the source being discussed
Explain what sets the source apart from others; does it complement or counter them?
Your annotations will be substantive; it is unlikely that you will be able to cover each source in fewer than 250 words.
