Dr. Racine’s research is designed to improve the ethical aspects of quality of care, research practices and public communications in the domain of clinical and basic neuroscience. Various approaches and research methods, such as qualitative interviews, content analysis and media studies, are used to develop ethical approaches in health care and research. For example, some research projects propose ethical approaches to end-of-life decision-making for patients with severe neurological conditions, while others examine and attempt to improve the quality of information available in the media on neurological conditions and research methods in neuroscience.
