At this point in your doctoral journey, you’re preparing for the next steps. It’s easy to forget or not to consider that even at this stage, in preparing for a professional doctorate and doctoral capstone project, you’re accountable for upholding professional and ethical conduct, confidentiality, privacy, security, safety, human subject protections, and compliance standards. Use the expertise you have gained in your CITI Research Ethics and Compliance training and what you’ve learned from your readings to consider specific potential issues that may arise at this point in your journey. Complete the following:
Describe three potential professional, ethical, or compliance-related issues that may arise as you prepare for your professional doctorate and doctoral capstone project.
These issues can be related to confidentiality, privacy, security, applicable research ethics, compliance standards and expectations, professional conduct, or other related topics.
Then, delineate action steps to prevent, mitigate, address, or solve each of the three issues.
