House Rules: Using the Television Series "House" to Teach Research Ethics
Andrews, Urkovia
Communication Teacher, v27 n3 p152-155 2013
The purpose of this exercise is to get students to relay and connect with the impact of ethics on public relations research. Students will begin to realize and analyze how their personal ethics influence their professional ethics choices. This is conceptualized through the completion of the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) course or the National Institutes of Health (NIH) course, followed by watching the "House" episode ''Informed Consent,'' and then discussion. An episode from the television series "House" is used for this exercise due to the display of conflicting ethical viewpoints, the immediate impact of those viewpoints on the patient, and the continuous dilemma between personal ethics and job employment. This exercise is useful for public relations research and ethics courses.
