Consenting older adults: research as a virtuous relationship
This chapter argues that the virtues of the researcher are crucial when conducting research with people with dementia. Consent is often particularly problematic with this group and for research to proceed, it must occur within a caring relationship that is structured by appropriate professional virtues. It argues that beyond valid consent and the legalism of the basic paradigm, consent ought to be regarded as an interactive process of communication grounded in relationship.
