As the field of “translational genomics” continues to grow, the issue of returning individual research results places IRBs at the boundary of research and clinical care. A common legal and ethical dilemma faced by investigators, institutions, and IRBs is whether to return (or allow return of) research test results of potential clinical significance that were not obtained in a laboratory with Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) certification.
This session will provide an overview of both the ethical and legal considerations behind the question of whether to return individual results, as well as suggest best practices for investigators and IRBs seeking to navigate this common ethical and regulatory dilemma.
This webinar is pre-approved for 1.0 contact hours of continuing education credit for the Certified IRB Professional (CIP) certification, and for Maintenance of ACRP’s CCRC®, CCRA®, CCTI® or CPI® certifications
