Ethics in Health and Breastfeeding Research Series: Webinar II
Offering Financial Incentives to Participants in Health and Breastfeeding Research

Offering financial incentives is a common practice in health research to recruit participants, retain them, and promote health-related behaviours. Nevertheless, the use of these incentives remains controversial in some cases. In this webinar, international experts present their views on financial incentives in health research, discuss the ethical questions around the topic with a focus on breastfeeding research, and answer questions from the audience.

The Swiss Medical Weekly has published a viewpoint on the topic of the webinar. Please access it here: Swiss Medical Weekly
