Trial designers need to be realistic about this possibility, trying hard to eliminate it, but being on the lookout that it has occurred. The problem is considered in more detail in Baso˘glu et al.

One of us (SW) proposed a trial of debriefing some years ago for victims of disaster, but was told in no uncertain terms that this was unethical, since it was so clearly of benefit. Ethical problems in clinical trials reflect the delicate balance between individual ethics and collective ethics faced by clinicians. How do they ensure that each individual patient receives the treatment most beneficial for his or her condition, while evaluating competing therapies as efficiently as possible so that all future patients might benefit from the superior treatment and, as a consequence, advance public health through careful scientific experimentation?

If we asked those who took part, then again the studies show that most are very satisfied with debriefing, and felt the experience was beneficial. Of course, some do go on to develop psychiatric disorders despite debriefing, but supporters of debriefing would say that the intervention is not perfect, and that these people were going to get PTSD anyway. It is only when researchers starting doing randomized controlled trials that a different picture emerges. , 2000).
