Tackling inequalities in access to clinical pharmacist led healthcare: recognising and overcoming ethical issues of inclusion in research.
MacLure, Katie; MacLeod, Joan
Clinical pharmacists are trained to treat people from all walks of life equally. Their work ethos and ethical practice promotes inclusion and respect for diversity. Pharmacy practice is evidence-based so it follows that research must also promote equality and inclusion while respecting diversity. All too often what are considered marginalised or vulnerable groups are excluded from participation in research because gaining the necessary ethical approvals is perceived to be overly challenging and methods of data collection often require adaptation. The paradox is that not researching such groups is in itself unethical.
