Addressing “Ethical and Anti-oppressive Practice” Section in your Research Proposal In addressing

Addresing this section in your research proposal, please remember that you are NOT addressing issues to do with ETHICS in RESEARCH because you are NOT carrying out primary research – It’s about the professional ethics, Anti oppressive Practice and the ethical dilemmas in your field of practice & chosen research topic. Three key points: a. You are required to say how you will address / consider ethical and anti-oppressive practice in your final project, hence, you are actually not nailing it down in the proposal b. You are expected to support the discussion with relevant literature c. All students are expected refer to anti-discrimination legislation. In addition, you are expected to refer to the issues below depending on your area of practice: Health Students You are expected to refer to the following 4 Principles of Ethics 1. Respect for Autonomy – allowing people to make their own decisions, not imposing one’s own choices on them – Tensions/ dilemmas – people choose to smoke, binge drink, engage in substance misuse, eat junk food, not exercise, etc. 2. Beneficence – the aim of doing well; giving medicine to relieve suffering, encouraging those obese to exercise, eating well etc.- tensions/ dilemmas- aim of doing well by health/ social work & youth work professionals – not always perceived that way by patients/ service users 3. Non-maleficence (primum non nocere) ensuring that patients/ service users are not harmed by any interventions – tensions and dilemmas –Ivan Illich (1976) – Clinical iatrogenesis . 2. Social iatrogensis 3. Cultural iatrogenesis 4. Justice – treating equals equally, avoiding discrimination; distributing resources fairlyTensions and dilemmas – are resources distributed equally within the topic you are examining? What about the post code lottery within the NHS e.t.c? Is there evidence of

systematic discrimination in the field of practice? 5. You should also consider exploring Utilitarianism, i.e. The potential implications of maximizing good/ benefits e.g. in resource allocation around your research topic etc. & Deontology – duty based ethics – you will also need to consider potential areas of conflict ******Please note that while the above is addressed to health students, it may also apply to other different areas of practice. Youth Work/ Studies Students You are expected to refer to the youth work code of ethics (on Weblearn) and to consider AntiOppressive Practice in relation to actual youth work practice and how it relates to your chosen research topic. Social Work Students You are expected to draw from the Social workers’ code of ethics and the teaching input you get around Anti-oppressive practice.
