This focus group guide (see the methods, focus groups section of the linked article) was designed to assess interest in a research ethics consultation service. It includes a set of questions for biomedical researchers designed to assess their perceptions of ethical and social questions related to their research, ideas about the role of bioethicists, the kinds of research that is controversial, the role of scientists in dealing with controversy, and other topics.

This focus group guide assesses the perspectives of IRB professionals toward research on medical practices within usual care. It was utilized in the ROMP study for focus groups conducted for the purposes of developing and refining a survey instrument for the same population. The survey is also available in this database.
