With the transition to remote work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, research teams, Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), and others supporting human research have worked to develop alternate workflows for processes that would normally be done face-to-face.
This webinar explores the conduct of remote informed consent including components, process options, documentation requirements, and agency-specific regulatory requirements and flexibilities. The webinar discusses how to adapt face-to-face processes to remote, including options for electronic consent documentation. It includes real world examples in various research scenarios.
- Consider requirements that apply to remote consent processes and documentation including HHS, HIPAA, and FDA regulated research.
- Adapt informed consent components for a remote process including areas of regulatory flexibility afforded by agencies due to the pandemic.
- Explore electronic consent solutions and challenges.
- Review remote consent process examples in various research scenarios.
