The Declaration of Helsinki, was developed by the World Medical Association (WMA), as a set of ethical principles for the medical community regarding human clinical trials. It is widely regarded as the cornerstone document of human research ethics and is adhered to by everyone that works with Coastal Carolina Research Center.
It is the mission of the physician to safeguard the health of the people. His or her knowledge and conscience are dedicated to the fulfillment of this mission.
The Declaration of Geneva of the World Medical Association binds the physician with the words, "The health of my patient will be my first consideration," and the International Code of Medical Ethics declares that, "A physician shall act only in the patient's interest when providing medical care which might have the effect of weakening the physical and mental condition of the patient."
