The Real Impact of Common Rule in 2018: Understanding Nuances, Facilitating Compliance & Implementing Best Practices


Thursday, June 21, 2018 · 1:30-3:00 pm ET

The first revisions to the Common Rule in more than a decade have thrown the clinical trials industry into a seemingly perpetual spin cycle.

This webinar will enable you to fully understand the key changes to the Common Rule and how they dramatically impact IRBs and virtually every entity engaged in clinical research.

Save this date—June 21, 2018—to hear one of the leading authorities on the Common Rule rule explain:

  • Changes to Informed Consent, which add new requirements for consent documents and new guidance for investigators in the consent process.
  • Changes to Broad Consent, which now allows, but does not require, researchers to request broad consent from subjects for secondary research involving identifiable private information and identifiable biospecimens.
  • Implementation of Limited IRB Review, which introduces this new concept in connection with exempt research, expedited review and the criteria for IRB approval of research.
  • Exemptions, including provisions that modify existing categories of exempt research, add new exemptions for certain low-risk studies and provide additional carve-outs for activities not classified as research.
  • Updates to SOPs, which result in institutions and IRBs having to update their standard operating procedures, including the definitions of “research” and “human subjects.”
  • And much more!

Make sure you continue to receive grant funding from federal agencies and departments that have adopted the Common Rule. And avoid allegations of noncompliance or incident reporting to the OHRP.

Your presenters, Carrie Hanger, Esq. and Jennifer Mallory, both experts on clinical trial regulation and partners in the law firm of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, will provide the information you need to obtain grants and avert noncompliance.

As you’ll hear from Ms. Hanger and Ms. Mallory, the implementation date for compliance with the new regulations and guidance is set to kick in before you know it, but even that date is in flux (all the more reason to attend the webinar).
