CRES Event: Innovations in Informed Consent @ UW Husky Union Building Lyceum
Jun 20 @ 8:30 am – 12:00 pm

“Every human being of adult years and sound mind has a right to determine what shall be done with his own body.” -Schloendorff v. Society of New York Hospital, 1914 Court of Appeals

Informed consent is a critical, complex piece of the research process. Join us for this half-day event to challenge how you’ve always thought about informed consent and how you can improve it to better support your research participants.

By attending you will learn how to:

  • Consider the historical, ethical, and legal importance of informed consent
  • Examine published data on informed consent, discuss new ideas, and practice innovative approaches
  • Revisit the regulatory requirements for informed consent in order to better support participants’ decisions
  • Design and apply new methods to improve the informed consent process

Who should attend?

Anyone whose research studies include an informed consent process.

OPENING SESSION

  • Data on Informed Consent: What we know (and don’t know) about the forms, methods, and process (Seema Shah, JD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Washington, Treuman Katz Center for Pediatric Bioethics)
  • The Regulatory Landscape: Dissolving the monolith of informed consent (Adrienne Meyer, MPA, CIP, Assistant Director for Researcher Support, University of Washington Human Subjects Division)
  • Snapshot: Cutting-edge explorations in informed consent practices (Bran LeFae, Medical Writer, Seattle Genetics)

BREAKOUTS (Seattle)

  • Option 1: Comprehension and the Informed Consent Discussion. Seema Shah, JD will focus on innovative approaches to understanding difficult concepts during the informed consent conversation. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss new ideas and practice innovative approaches in small groups.
  • Option 2: Plain Language Consent Forms. Bran LeFae will share plain language writing and editing techniques to help you bridge the health literacy gap in written informed consent material. NOTE: If you’d like to register for this option, please bring a laptop if you have one to take part in the live editing session.
  • Option 3: UW IRB Consent Template Focus Group. Adrienne Meyer, MPA, CIP, will lead this breakout session as a focus group. You will have an opportunity to share your ideas on how to improve the UW IRB consent form templates to make them easier for you to use, more flexible for different types of research and to better support your study participants’ decisions to participate in research.

BREAKOUTS (SPOKANE)

  • Option 1: Consent as an Ongoing Process.   Andrea Lazarus, PhD, Assistant Vice President of Research, WSU will discuss sharing incidental findings with participants in clinical studies and what the investigator responsibility is
  • Option 2: Plain language forms and assessing participant comprehension. Session led by Beth Hill, SHMC Medical Librarian.
  • Option 3: IRB perspectives on informed consent: the good, the bad, and the future. Session leader TBD.

LOCATION

This event will be simultaneously hosted at the HUB Lyceum and the Providence Center for Faith and Healing in Spokane, with a live broadcast of the opening sessions and unique breakout sessions available at each location.
