12:00 - 1:00 pm ET The Promise and Complications of “Broad Consent”
Mark Barnes, JD, Partner, Ropes & Gray, LLP
The revised Common Rule created a new version of consent entitled “Broad Consent,” meant to allow unrestricted future uses of identifiable data and biospecimens. The provisions for Broad Consent are complex and carry complications of such significance that few medical centers have adopted its use. This session will explore the history and meaning of Broad Consent, and will ask whether there are any circumstances in which its use is both practical and useful.
