Graphic for Research Ethics conference 2017
It’s been more than 100 years since the landmark Schloendorff v. Society of New York Hospital decision, in which the court articulated a foundational concept of bioethics: “Every human being of adult years and sound mind has a right to determine what shall be done with his own body.” This national conference brought together renowned speakers from a variety of disciplines who addressed how informed consent ethics and policy have developed over the past century, and what tools are needed to improve patient and research participant protections going forward. Discussion included recent changes to the Common Rule governing research, including changes on informed consent and broad consent.
