Webinar: (2019-10) Real-World Approaches to Informed Consent under the Revised Common Rule

As the end of the first year of the revised Common Rule era approaches, it’s time for a check-in: how is the human subjects research oversight community doing so far with the new requirements? In particular, how have we acclimated to the revised Common Rule’s implications for informed consent? Many institutions have incorporated the new requirement for a summary of key information to assist potential research subjects in understanding the reasons why they might or might not want to participate in a study. There is less clarity, however, around other items, including return of research results and future use of identifiable data and biospecimens.

In lieu of official guidance, learning from one another is paramount. During this webinar, three panelists will share insights related to their institutional policies and procedures in this area. Join us to discuss successes, challenges, and lessons learned. (Presented on October 23, 2019)
