Explain the ethical implications involved in your proposal, including any ethical considerations related to the problem, intervention (if appropriate), research methods, and design. Include in your discussion a brief description of the population of interest and what kinds of ethical implications might be involved with this population. For example, are you working with kids, older adults, inmates, or other special populations? Are you working with people who might have suffered a trauma of some sort? You must explain the needs of your potential population and how diversity may play a role (e.g., different cultural needs).
If you think your study will have limited ethical implications, explain how you have evaluated the topic for ethical considerations, including the guidelines you have used. Finally, identify ways to mitigate or address any ethical issues.
