Discussion: Local Health Fair NUR 550
DQ1 You attend a local health fair organized by several health care research companies. You notice that a company is distributing a trial drug to other attendees at one of the booths. When you approach one of the researchers, you are offered a waiver to sign for participation in the trial.
What ethical or legal parameters should the researchers have considered prior to distributing the trial drug at the health fair? If you were on the translational research team, what steps would you have taken to maintain ethical and legal guidelines?

Fair Planning Guide
Remember that different people respond
to different messages, so use as many
methods as possible to promote an event.
Think about how messages and memos are
normally communicated in your organization.
If a certain method of communication that
works well in your workplace, start there.
Promote the event at least four weeks in advance.
Consider using a different method or a variety of
methods to communicate the event each week.
Keep the messages simple and interesting by
adding more information with each message
(teasers). This can raise curiosity and anticipation.
Don’t forget that word of mouth is often the best
method of communication. Therefore, you will
want each person on your planning team to talk
up the event (in hallways, in elevators and at
meetings). This also works well on the day of
the event. Before participants go back to their
workstations, remind them to tell others about
the event and encourage them to attend.
Here are some ideas to promote your
health fair. Remember to pick a variety of
methods to help ensure a large turnout:
• Voicemail message reminders
• Table tents in break rooms and cafeteria
• E-mail messages
• An article in the company newsletter
• Announcements at employee meetings
• Paycheck stuffers
• Word of mouth
• Flyers on everyone’s desk the
morning of the event
• Intranet postings
• Flyers that offer an incentive to
participate in the event
• Place posters in highly visible
locations such as:
− On the door of the employee entrance
− In the copy room
− On restroom mirrors and the
back of stall doors.
− Under the windshield wiper of each
employee car in the parking lot
− In the elevators and/or staircases
ORDER NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER ASSIGNMENT:Discussion: Local Health Fair NUR 550
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
