Explore how IRBs approach the review of informed consent and make determinations about waivers and alterations of both the process as well as the documentation. Find out what a waiver of informed consent means and if flexibilities can be found in the regulations. Should IRBs work more closely with research teams to identify the most appropriate informed consent approach for a study?
This webinar is designed to help IRB administrators and members think about how they can review informed consent by taking into consideration the nature of a research study while following the regulations.
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Identify regulatory flexibilities for informed consent
- Examine waivers and alterations of the consent process and waivers of documentation of informed consent
- Discuss how the flexibilities provide an opportunity to tailor the consent process to the scientific goals of the study, while protecting the rights and welfare of human subjects
