In a collaborative effort, three clinical ethicists, a philosopher, Jonsen, a physician, Siegler, and a lawyer, Winslade, developed the “four quadrant approach” (4QA) for facilitating ethics discussions and dealing with difficult cases in clinical settings.
A slightly modified, adapted version (A4QA) is provided here to test its applicability in research ethics (RE) and research integrity (RI) scenarios.
A case analysis example is provided for discussion, and commentaries to collect insights for further fine-tuning the 4QA into a tool that is well adjusted to RE and RI scenarios.
We would be immensely grateful if you could take cc. 30 minutes to actively participate in this discussion with reading and commenting on the A4QA.
