Non-maleficence

The principle of non-maleficence, or doing no harm, requires researchers to avoid harm or injury to children, both through acts of commission or omission. It reminds researchers that research that is likely to do harm to children is unethical and should not proceed. Research should be methodologically and ethically sound, rigorous, relevant and likely to have impact.
