Course Description:

This course reviews ISO 14155 ethical considerations, including special circumstances where clinical investigations can be conducted in vulnerable populations. It also reviews specific requirements of the informed consent process, including obtaining informed consent when subjects cannot read or write or are incapable of giving consent due to a special clinical status.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successfully completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • Know that the foundation of good clinical practice ethical considerations is the Declaration of Helsinki
  • Use the information in ISO 14155 as a basis for ethical considerations in clinical documents and as part of the process for ethics committee submissions and ongoing communications
  • Recognize that ISO 14155 can only provide general requirements and that national or local regulations may have more stringent requirements (if local or national rules are less stringent than ISO’s, it is advisable to follow ISO whenever possible so as to guarantee worldwide acceptance of your data)

  • Understand the essential elements of an informed consent and implement a compliant template.
