The ethical approval process for conducting video-ethnographic research article has been published! Find a glimpse here ~ please get in touch with me if you’d like to a copy for your own personal interest.
Short and sweet blog-post my friends.
Please do let me know your thoughts on the subject of trying to gain ethical approval for research concerned with – as they are typically considered – “vulnerable” populations, such as women in labour. They have the ability to communicate and decide for themselves, yet the hospital system and ethical boards (IRB’s, HRECs) tend towards overprotection at the risk of not understanding the needs of women in labour, therefore, our continued acceptance of medicalised birth.
Until then, happy space, place and meaning making, my mates.
