Navigating the Unusual Consent Process

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

Course Description

Informed consent is a challenging process with any clinical trial subject; ensuring understanding and agreement with a form detailing a medical study and filled with legal jargon can be time consuming and stressful. In addition, when we are faced with unusual consent situations, and the rules are not readily available, we run into questions regarding ethics and regulatory ramifications. This web seminar is designed to address some of the more unusual consent situations and address the regulations, guidances, and input from ethics committees on developing the consent document and managing the informed consent process. Considerations for use of the short form, legally authorized representatives, exceptions to the standard consent process, pediatric assent, and challenges with impaired subjects will be discussed.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the informed consent process and key element requirements
  • Apply informed consent principles and standards to case studies representing “unusual” circumstances 
  • Address processes for developing informed consent templates that meet the needs of unique study populations
