2018 OHRP EXPLORATORY WORKSHOP: Meeting New Challenges in informed consent in Clinical Research (Sept 7, 2018)

OHRP Exploratory Workshop: Meeting New Challenges in informed consent in Clinical Research

The OHRP Exploratory Workshop is a new initiative designed to provide a forum for intellectual exchange within the research community on important issues related to human subjects protections. The workshop will bring together experts from diverse perspectives to discuss challenges for informed consent and innovative ways to address them. We anticipate that panel discussions will involve only invited speakers and moderators.


  • Laying the groundwork for meaningful informed consent
  • Effectively presenting information to facilitate high-quality decision-making
  • Pragmatic clinical trials (PCT) – challenges and innovations in getting informed consent
  • Delivery room research and the challenges for informed consent
    Closing: Moderatos panel
