Informed Consent
Human Subject Protection in the Digital Health Age

Tuesday, March 31, 2020 • 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EDT

NEW: The webinar will be updated to include last week’s guidance from the FDA on conducting clinical trials during the COVID-19 pandemic, including how to determine when changes need to be made to the protocol and consent forms.

Digital technologies that collect personal healthcare information are a blessing for clinical trial specialists.

It’s helpful to have the medical info for research purposes, but you need a solid understanding of the latest FDA and federal regulations for informed consent and human subject protection.

Join CenterWatch and experts Michael Werner and Sara Klock for a comprehensive webinar on how to comply with FDA and other federal regulation of digital technologies March 31.

Webinar Takeaways:

  • Assess how digital technologies used to gather, analyze and report healthcare data for medical treatment purposes or to promote a healthy lifestyle can also be used for research purposes
  • Familiarize yourself with the regulatory landscape to understand how digital technologies and the information they gather and use in research will be regulated
  • Determine how to design clinical trials using digital technologies that comply with the 21st Century Cures Act and changes to the Common Rule
  • Identify what activities can be undertaken to develop new digital technologies without triggering federal research regulations
  • Find out how to develop informed consent forms when Institutional Review Board oversight is required, and other compliance questions
  • Identify factors likely to determine whether and to what extent certain technologies are regulated as medical devices by FDA
