View Online 8/28/13 US DHHS Public Meeting on Protection of Human Subjects and Research Studying Standard of Care Interventions

Aug 22, 2013

On August 28, 2013, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will hold a public meeting to seek public input and comment on how certain provisions of the Federal policy for the protection of human subjects should be applied to research studying one or more interventions which are used as standard of care treatment in the non-research context.  HHS specifically requests input regarding how an institutional review board (IRB) should assess the risks of research involving randomization to one or more treatments within the standard of care for particular interventions, and what reasonably foreseeable risks of the research should be disclosed to research subjects in the informed consent process. 

The public meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Washington, DC.  HHS is providing an option to view the public meeting via live streaming technology at: www.HHS.gov/live (hit the “Click to Play” arrow).  For more information, visit http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/newsroom/rfc/Public%20Meeting%20August%2028,%202013/aug28public.html.
