No longer @LynchMason
I wish people wouldn’t turn this into a binary issue. (ethics process vs. no ethics process). I don’t think Ben, me or anyone else are arguing for ethics processes to be abandoned. It’s just that the current process lacks focus and is often disproportionate (leading to delays in getting approval and taking action) and is not adequately held to account. As Ben says, it’s almost as our ethical principles suddenly have to change as soon as someone even whispers the word ‘research’.
