We will explore the nature of ethics consultation as an intervention, identify the obstacles to addressing the main components of research design (excluding outcomes measurement, which is discussed in the article by Ellen Fox and Robert M. Arnold in this issue, "Evaluating outcomes in ethics consultation research"), propose potential solutions to these challenges, and conclude with a tentative agenda for research.
