The Certificate of Confidentiality at the National Institutes of Health: Discretionary Considerations in Its Applicability in Research on Child and Adolescent Mental Disorders
Ethics and Behavior. 1994; 4(2): 123-131.
Child and adolescent researchers must balance increasingly complex sets of ethical, legal, and scientific standards when investigating child and adolescent mental disorders. Few guidelines are available. One mechanism that provides the investigator immunity from legally compelled disclosure of research records is described. However, discretion must be exercised in its use, especially with regard to abuse reporting, voluntary disclosure of abuse, and protection of research data. Examples of discretionary issues in the use of the certificate of confidentiality are provided.
