Human Subject Protection: DHHS and the FDA

Please check back later for this seminar's current schedule, or review our other live seminars for similar courses.

Course Description

Human subject protection (HSP) regulations haven’t kept pace with the evolution of clinical research. As a result, the regulatory requirements are unclear, inconsistent, and outdated. In response, the DHHS, the United States’ agency that houses both OHRP and the FDA, released its announcement for proposed rule changes to the regulations that govern the conduct of human subject research in an effort to streamline, modernize, and increase their effectiveness.

The FDA has also issued new regulations, guidance, and procedures to improve the conduct of clinical trials, assess the accuracy and reliability of clinical trial data, and secure the protection of human research participants. Guidance documents and legislation will be reviewed to highlight how the FDA’s response to the recommendations will impact the conduct of clinical trials.
