Dilemmas of medical ethics in the Canadian Penitentiary Service. (1/1957)

There is a unique hospital in Canada-and perhaps in the world-because it is built outside prison walls and it exists specifically for the psychiatric treatment of prisoners. It is on the one hand a hospital and on the other a prison. Moreover it has to provide the same quality and standard of care which is expected of a hospital associated with a university. From the time the hospital was established moral dilemmas appeared which were concerned with conflicts between the medical and custodial treatment of prisoners, and also with the attitudes of those having the status of prisoner-patient. Dr Roy describes these dilemmas and attitudes, and in particular a special conference which was convened to discuss them. Not only doctors and prison officials took part in this meeting but also general practitioners, theologians, philosophers, ex-prisoners, judges, lawyers, Members of Parliament and Senators. This must have been a unique occasion and Dr Roy's description may provide the impetus to examine these prison problems in other settings.  (+info)

Consent obtained by the junior house officer--is it informed? (3/1957)

Of 30 junior house officers questioned, 21 had obtained patients' consent for colonoscopy. Of these 21, about one-third did not routinely discuss with patients the risks of perforation and haemorrhage. Ideally, consent should be obtained by a person capable of performing the procedure. If it is to be obtained by junior house officers, they need to know exactly what must be disclosed about each procedure. This could easily be done as part of the induction package.  (+info)

Conditions required for a law on active voluntary euthanasia: a survey of nurses' opinions in the Australian Capital Territory. (4/1957)

OBJECTIVES: To ascertain which conditions nurses believe should be in a law allowing active voluntary euthanasia (AVE). DESIGN: Survey questionnaire posted to registered nurses (RNs). SETTING: Australian Capital Territory (ACT) at the end of 1996, when active voluntary euthanasia was legal in the Northern Territory. SURVEY SAMPLE: A random sample of 2,000 RNs, representing 54 per cent of the RN population in the ACT. MAIN MEASURES: Two methods were used to look at nurses' opinions. The first involved four vignettes which varied in terms of critical characteristics of each patient who was requesting help to die. The respondents were asked if the law should be changed to allow any of these requests. There was also a checklist of conditions, most of which have commonly been included in Australian proposed laws on AVE. The respondents chose those which they believed should apply in a law on AVE. RESULTS: The response rate was 61%. Support for a change in the law to allow AVE was 38% for a young man with AIDS, 39% for an elderly man with early stage Alzheimer's disease, 44% for a young woman who had become quadriplegic and 71% for a middle-aged woman with metastases from breast cancer. The conditions most strongly supported in any future AVE law were: "second doctor's opinion", "cooling off period", "unbearable protracted suffering", "patient fully informed about illness and treatment" and "terminally ill". There was only minority support for "not suffering from treatable depression", "administer the fatal dose themselves" and "over a certain age". CONCLUSION: Given the lack of support for some conditions included in proposed AVE laws, there needs to be further debate about the conditions required in any future AVE bills.  (+info)

Relationships between various attitudes towards self-determination in health care with special reference to an advance directive. (5/1957)

OBJECTIVES: The subject of patient self-determination in health care has gained broad interest because of the increasing number of incompetent patients. In an attempt to solve the problems related to doctors' decision making in such circumstances, advance directives have been developed. The purpose of this study was to examine relationships between public attitudes towards patient autonomy and advance directives. SUBJECTS AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: A stratified random sample of 600 adults in northern Sweden was surveyed by a questionnaire with a response rate of 78.2%. The subjects were asked about their wish for control of their health care, their concerns about health care, their treatment preferences in a life-threatening situation (both reversible and irreversible), and their attitudes towards the application of advance directives. RESULTS: Numerous relationships between various aspects of self-determination in health care (desire for control, fears of over-treatment, and choice of treatment level) in general and advance directives, in particular, were found. Those who wanted to have a say in their health care (about 94%) also mainly supported the use of an advance directive. CONCLUSIONS: The fact that almost 30% of the respondents were undecided concerning their personal use of advance directives points to a lack of knowledge and to the necessity of education of the public on these issues.  (+info)

Risks and benefits of coronary angioplasty: the patients perspective: a preliminary study. (7/1957)

OBJECTIVES: To describe what cardiac patients in Northern Ireland understand to be the benefits of coronary angioplasty and assess the extent to which they have been able to make informed choices about their treatment. DESIGN: An interview based questionnaire survey completed after the patients had undergone coronary angiography, within hours of treatment counselling. SUBJECTS: 150 patients consecutively recruited from two regional cardiology centres in Belfast, Northern Ireland. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The perceived complication rate and the perceived gain in life expectancy from coronary angioplasty. RESULTS: Although most subjects had asked the consultant questions, 70% (n = 104) thought that they contributed negligibly or not at all to the treatment decision. Although 75% (n = 112) recalled discussing the complication rate from the procedure, only 27% accurately estimated this rate (as between 0.5 and 1.5%). Eighty eight per cent (n = 131) thought that their mortality risks would be substantially or greatly reduced by having the procedure. The patients anticipated a gain in life expectancy of some 10 years (median) and this was significantly in excess of the potential gain in life expectancy which dietary prudence to lower blood cholesterol, not smoking, and taking more exercise might produce (median 5 years respectively; P < 0.0001, Wilcoxon matched pairs signed rank test). CONCLUSIONS: Patients vastly overrate the capacity of angioplasty to control their disease: angioplasty is seen as more effective than risk factor modification.  (+info)

Inquiry into the potential value of an information pamphlet on consent to surgery to improve surgeon-patient communication. (8/1957)

OBJECTIVES: To find out how patients recently undergoing surgery experienced the consenting process and the response of these patients to a pamphlet on consent to surgery. To test the reaction of health professionals to the pamphlet. DESIGN: A pilot pamphlet was produced and a questionnaire was sent to patients inquiring about their consenting experience, and how the pamphlet might have helped them through the consent procedure. A pamphlet and a questionnaire were also sent to a random sample of the health professionals serving these patients. SUBJECTS: Patients and health professionals. RESULTS: 61% of patients returned the questionnaire. Knowledge about the consent procedure was shown to be limited. 49% were unaware that they had the right to insist that the surgeon could only perform the specified operation and nothing more. 83% were unaware that they could add something in writing to the consent form before signing. 28% of health professionals returned their questionnaire, most of whom thought that the pamphlet provided a useful contribution to surgeon-patient communication. CONCLUSION: Evidence shows that patients are not well informed about consenting to surgery and further information would provide much needed guidance on understanding their role in the consent procedure. The low response from the health professional study is perhaps an indication that at present this is an issue which is not seen as a priority.  (+info)

The regulatory guidelines on obtaining informed consent require that all protocols be reviewed by an ethics review committee; in addition study information must be presented to volunteers by the research teams in simple and understandable language, to ensure they are able to give informed consent for their participation. Despite the innovative methods that have been developed over the years to improve informed consent, the informed consent process is still a difficult subject and not fully understood particularly in developing countries. Objective: In this study I sought to understand and evaluate the informed consent process as perceived by the different actors in two HIV clinical trials and how their understandings and interpretation of the process are reflected in standardized informed consent guidelines. Methodology: The actors included: members of the ethics review committee, senior researchers, the field research teams, the community advisory board members and the research volunteers. Data ...

Amazon.com description: Product Description: This important book proposes revising the current informed consent protocol for predictive genetic testing to reflect the trend toward patient-centered medicine. Emphasizing the predictive aspect of testing, the author analyzes the state of informed consent procedure in terms of three components: comprehension of risk assessment, disclosure to select appropriate treatment, and voluntariness. The books revised model revisits these cornerstones, restructuring the consent process to allow for expanded comprehension time, enhanced patient safety, greater patient involvement and autonomy, and reduced chance of coercion by family or others. A comparison of the current and revised versions and case studies showing the new model in real-world applications add extra usefulness to this resource.. Included in the coverage:. ...
Within these limitations 81% of patients in our series undergoing urgent abdominal surgery were in pain at the time of giving consent to surgery. However, the majority (66%) perceived that this did not affect their ability to give informed consent. This is consistent with the findings of our previous study.3 This agreement between our two studies supports the impression that at least some patients with acute abdominal pain perceive that they retain the ability to give informed consent and is interesting, given that the two studies were separated by a time period of over 12 months and involved two distinct cohorts of junior hospital doctors.. Although 52 (70%) patients undergoing urgent surgery had received analgesia before signing consent only 14 (27%) reported an adverse effect of analgesia on the ability to give informed consent. This is perhaps fortunate as in only 57% of cases did the consent obtainer ascertain whether or not the patient had received analgesia prior to the informed consent ...
This article is part of a series of papers examining ethical issues in cluster randomized trials (CRTs) in health research. In the introductory paper in this series, we set out six areas of inquiry that must be addressed if the cluster trial is to be set on a firm ethical foundation. This paper addresses the second of the questions posed, namely, from whom, when, and how must informed consent be obtained in CRTs in health research? The ethical principle of respect for persons implies that researchers are generally obligated to obtain the informed consent of research subjects. Aspects of CRT design, including cluster randomization, cluster level interventions, and cluster size, present challenges to obtaining informed consent. Here we address five questions related to consent and CRTs: How can a study proceed if informed consent is not possible? Is consent to randomization always required? What information must be disclosed to potential subjects if their cluster has already been randomized? Is passive
Video recording can greatly assist the trier of fact in assessing [a] confession.[1] They provide a means for the court to enforce safeguards, it evaluates interrogation methods and deters improper tactics.[2]. A statement that was not recorded does not automatically render it inadmissible.[3] The same goes for incomplete recordings.. However, the lack of recording can enhance concerns of voluntariness.[4] Where the accused is in custody in a location equipped to record a statement but it was not used, the non-recorded statement is inherently suspect.[5]. Where the statement was not recorded or only partially recorded, the statement may be excluded where the absence of a record results in the inability to determine if the statement was voluntary.[6] Thus, situations where the summarizing notes are too short to capture the whole statement may raise an issue on voluntariness.. Similarly, statements that are non-video or audio recorded, it is not necessarily inadmissible. In all cases, the crown ...
Patients have a right to privacy that should not be violated without informed consent. Identifying information, including names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, or pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires that an identifiable patient be shown the manuscript to be published. Authors should disclose to these patients whether any potential identifiable material might be available via the Internet as well as in print after publication. Patient consent should be written and archived with the journal, the authors, or both, as dictated by local regulations or laws. Applicable laws vary from locale to locale, and journals should establish their own policies with legal guidance. Since a journal that archives the consent will be aware of patient identity, some journals may decide that ...
Patient IRB approval and informed consent. Study subjects were ascertained following written informed consent procedures approved by the Institutional Review Board of Case Western Reserve University and in accordance with the MetroHealth Medical Center Human Investigation HIPAA Authorization Policy. Comprehensive clinical analyses in the enrolled family members (white, n = 101) include history, physical examination, and ECG recording.. Selection of patients in the study and clinical diagnosis parameters. Patients described in this study were initially identified and diagnosed by a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist who has been tracking and treating this family for 20 years and previously reported on the variable expressivity of LQTS in this family (14). Furthermore, molecular work has previously elucidated the disease-causing mechanism for the hERG R752W mutation (15). Phenotype binning (severely affected and mildly affected) was based on previously determined clinical diagnostic criteria ...
It is now widely accepted that patients should be empowered to control the uses to which their tissues are put after those tissues are removed from the body. From this it follows that it is wrong to use tissues against the wishes of the tissue donor, and this conclusion has led to a widespread requirement for explicit informed consent before tissues can be used in any form of research, however simple.. A second conclusion can be drawn, however, from this initial premise, namely that if the tissue donor is content for excised tissue to be used for the good of society, it is immoral to prohibit that use. Recent events in the UK have demonstrated that many RECs either ignore this second conclusion, or assume it can be simply dissolved by asking the tissue donor for consent. This is a valid assumption only if asking for consent is not a difficult matter. Communications received through the Royal College of Pathologists indicate that demands for explicit consent have led to the abandonment of many ...
Linking computerized health insurance records with routinely collected survey data is becoming increasingly popular in health services research. However, if consent is not universal, the requirement of written informed consent may introduce a number of research biases. The participants of a national health survey in Taiwan were asked to have their questionnaire results linked to their national health insurance records. This study compares those who consented with those who refused. A national representative sample (n = 14,611 adults) of the general adult population aged 20 years or older who participated in the Taiwan National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and who provided complete survey information were used in this study. At the end of the survey, the respondents were asked if they would give permission to access their National Health Insurance records. Information given by the interviewees in the survey was used to analyze who was more likely to consent to linkage and who wasnt. Of the 14,611 NHIS

The CATCH primary outcome (time to first blood stream infection) was measured by a blood sample (0.5 mL) taken from all catheter lumens (total 1.0-1.5 mL, depending on whether the catheter had two or three lumens) if there was a clinical indication of infection (see table 1). These samples were required as part of standard, good clinical practice and were not an additional requirement of the study. The CATCH protocol, stated that for emergency admissions, blood samples could be taken prior to seeking consent: Because blood sampling from all catheter lumens is the standard of good practice used in the trial, this sampling method should be used for patients who have not yet been approached for deferred consent.39 However, the protocol required a small amount of additional blood to be taken (approximately 0.5 mL) to test for bacterial DNA (called PCR testing). This was required for a secondary, composite measure of blood-stream infection. This test was additional to standard care.. All doctors ...
WASHINGTON -- Researchers and clinicians need to develop robust informed consent procedures to protect patient wishes after their entire DNA is sequenced, a presidential commission said.
Strong inhibitors and inducers of CYP3A4 can affect levels of cabozantinib and should be avoided whenever possible or switched to alternatives. Subjects requiring chronic concomitant treatment of strong CYP3A4 inducers (e.g., dexamethasone, phenytoin, carbamazepine, rifampin, rifabutin, rifapentin, phenobarbital, and St. John s Wort) are not eligible for this study. Because the lists of these agents are constantly changing, it is important to regularly consult a frequently-updated list such as http://medicine.iupui.edu/clinpharm/ddis/; medical reference texts such as the Physicians Desk Reference may also provide this information. As part of the enrollment/informed consent procedures, the patient will be counseled on the risk of interactions with other agents, and what to do if new medications need to be prescribed or if the patient is considering a new overthe-counter medicine or herbal product ...

Consent to participation in a research study by a participant after achieving an understanding of what is involved. The informed consent process involves three key features: (1) disclosing to potential research subjects information needed to make an informed decision, including details about the study procedures and treatment, the associated risks and benefits, and the risks and benefits of any alternatives or of not undergoing the study procedures; (2) facilitating the understanding of what has been disclosed; and (3) promoting the voluntariness of the decision about whether or not to participate in the research. Informed consent must be legally effective and obtained prior to participation in any research activities. The prospective subjects should be in a position to freely decide whether to initially enroll in the research, or later, to withdraw or continue participating in the research. The informed consent process should ensure that all critical information about a study is completely ...
We believe EcLiPSE is the first UK trial comparing investigational medicinal products to propose a deferred consent approach since this approach was legislated in 2008.11 Our findings provide insight into the views of parents experienced in this setting. The majority of parents in our sample were unfamiliar with deferred consent, yet responded positively to a general description of the method. When discussing deferred consent generally, parents questioned their capacity to provide an informed consent decision when their child was ill.4 ,45 They described how they trusted practitioners to make research-related decisions on their behalf and viewed deferred consent as an appropriate way to seek consent in emergency situations and thereby enable the future development of interventions to treat critically ill children.46 In this context, parents indicated that study and intervention type, safety information and route of administration impacted on their views on the acceptability of the consent ...
a)Required elements for written consent. A written consent to a disclosure under the regulations in this part may be paper or electronic and must include: (1) The name of the patient. (2) The specific name(s) or general designation(s) of the part 2 program(s), entity(ies), or individual(s) permitted to make the disclosure. (3) How much and what kind of information is to be disclosed, including an explicit description of the substance use disorder information that may be disclosed. (4) (i) The name(s) of the individual(s) to whom a disclosure is to be made; or (ii)Entities with a treating provider relationship with the patient. If the recipient entity has a treating provider relationship with the patient whose information is being disclosed, such as a hospital, a health care clinic, or a private practice, the name of that entity; or (iii)Entities without a treating provider relationship with the patient.

This chapter begins with a discussion of the barriers to adequate informed consent. It then presents examples that show how public health and genetics might come together, either in research or in clinical programs. The examples cover prenatal genetic screening, newborn screening programs, and the ways in which all genetics research inevitably involves families. It is argued that in designing modes of obtaining informed consent, explicit consideration must be given to the structural forces that may make truly informed consent difficult in each particular situation. Moreover, it must be realized that these structural forces have the potential to increase in importance and impact when coupled with any program that purports to have the publics health at stake.
to collection of data via the API, since the user has a choice to perform these actions and doing so implies consent for the application to access the associated Device Capabilities. In such situations where it is obvious that performing the action involves sharing data with the application and the applications intended use of the data is also obvious, additional dialogs that prompt users for consent may not be necessary. Device APIs may also be defined such that consent must be explicit, not implicit. Examples are a camera API that takes a photograph without user involvement, or a messaging API that sends a message without the user pressing send. In these cases dialogs may be required. To ensure that data is not collected without users knowing or realizing, APIs should be designed with the presumption that the explicit consent model will be used, and should explain the specific circumstances under which implicit consent may be acceptable. This gives rise to the following requirements:. ...

Informed consent is the process of communicating to a prospective participant, in easy-to-understand language (usually sixth- to eighth-grade level), all that he or she needs to know about participating in a research project, and then obtaining the prospective participants agreement to participate. The following ten elements of consent are widely recognized and, except under certain specific conditions, must be included in all consent processes and forms:. 1. An explanation of the study, including goals, procedure, and a statement that the study is research. 2. A description of what participants are expected to do and expected length of participation.. 3. A description of any likely risks or discomforts for the participants. Potential harm should be explained in language that participants can understand and that relate to everyday life. 4. A description of any likely benefits to the participant or to others.. 5. A disclosure of appropriate alternative procedures or courses of treatment, if any, ...
Over the long weekend I caught up on some reading. One article* stands out. Its on informed consent, and the stunning disconnect between physicians and patients understanding of a procedures value.. The study, published in the Sept 7 Annals of Internal Medicine, used survey methods to evaluate 153 cardiology patients understanding of the potential benefit of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI, or angioplasty). The investigators, at Baystate Medical Center in Massachusetts, compared patients responses to those of cardiologists who obtained consent and who performed the procedure. As outlined in the articles introduction, PCI reduces heart attacks in patients with acute coronary syndrome - a more unstable situation than is chronic stable angina, in which case PCI relieves pain and improves quality of life but has no benefit in terms of recurrent myocardial infarction (MI) or survival.. The main result was that, after discussing the procedure with a cardiologist and signing the form, ...
Although often thought of in a purely medico-legal way, the process of ensuring that a patient is informed about the procedure that they are about to undergo is a fundamental part of good quality patient care. Informed consent is far more than the act of placing a signature on a form; that signature in itself is only meaningful if the patient has been through a reasonable process that has left them in a position to make an informed decision. There has been much written around issues of informed consent, and the medico-legal climate has changed substantially in the past decade. It is important for any doctor to have an understanding of what is currently understood by informed consent. Although the legal systems in Australia and New Zealand are very different with respect to medical negligence, the standards around what constitutes informed consent are very similar. Until relatively recently, the standard applied to deciding whether the patient was given adequate and appropriate information with ...
Obtaining informed consent has typically become a stylized ritual of presenting and signing a form, in which physicians are acting defensively and patients lack
When it comes to doing research in emergency medicine situations, it is often difficult or impossible to receive informed consent from a patient to be a part of a research study. This is especially true for situations when the patient is unconscious or in critical condition.. When medical researchers want to conduct a study in an emergency medicine situation such as this, the most popular method of obtaining informed consent from potential research subjects is through an opt-out community consent model. In this model, communications to the community in which the hospital is located provide information about the study being conducted at the hospital and explain that everyone in the community will be considered for participation unless they opt out of the study and wear a wristband indicating that they do not. Without the bracelet and other opt-out indicators, provision of informed consent to be a part of this study is assumed.. Successfully informing an entire community is challenging, and ...
Medical procedures, dentistry, pericing, tattooing and blood tests. Consent can be given to surgical treatment through signing consent forms or signed by parent or guardian for a child, and by implied consent in emergencies. This consent can be refused or withdrawn any time. Tattooing can be consented, but regulated by statute: Tattooing of Minors Act 1969.. Horseplay and sexual activities. Horseplay is allowed providing the actions do not go too far and the defendants were not intending to cause harm. Jones 1986 established this. In Dica 2004 the defendant had unprotected sex with the victim. He was aware he had HIV however the victim was not. They had not consented to the risk of infection.. In Slingsby 1995, the defendant caused internal injuries to a woman from a signet ring she was wearing. At the time neither the defendant nor the victim were aware of the injuries until the wound became a serious medical problem. As no mens rea was formed for this thre was no need to consent to be an ...

Dentist ~ Options ~ Periodontal disease ~ Extent of restoration ~ Assessment ~ Standard of dentistry ~ Documentation ~ Informed consent ~ Rights 4(1), 4(2), 6(1)(b), 7(1). A woman complained to the Dental Council of New Zealand about the dental care provided by her dentist. The complaint was forwarded to HDC. The woman saw the dentist with a painful tooth and a vague pain behind her front teeth. He discussed the need for treatment and outlined his recommendations, including treatment of the periodontal disease and extensive surgical restoration of her missing and decayed teeth.. Following extensive dental treatment by the dentist, the woman suffered severe and ongoing discomfort. The dentist refunded $28,805.00 to the woman, and she since had her dental work re-done.. It was held that although the dentist maintained that he provided the woman with information about all the options ...
Occupational health adviser Lorraine Warren looks at the sometimes difficult issue of when to divulge patient information.. Consent is a fundamental part of any interaction between the occupational health (OH) adviser and an employee. It is important that the consent process is appropriately carried out and correctly recorded. In the OH setting, the OH adviser may have a number of roles pertinent to the consent process, including access to medical records from GPs and consent to send a report to management.. The issue of employee consent to disclosure of health information will increasingly impinge more directly on OH practice. This review of the literature related to consent in OH discusses the relevant law as well as the values and opinions of OH practitioners, and asks whether OH practice needs to change to be in the best interests of the employee.. An online survey tool was used to analyse the opinions of external OH advisers (67 respondents) around the issue of disclosing a workers health ...
The study will consist of 3 phases: an initial screening phase which must be completed 7 to 14 days prior to randomization; an 8-week double-blind treatment phase; and a 2-week double-blind dose-tapering follow-up phase. After obtaining written informed consent the investigator will initiate washout of prior psychotropic medications. After the washout of prior psychotropic medications has been completed the investigator must ensure that the subject is no longer taking psychotropic medication for at least 14 days prior to the randomization visit. In addition the investigator must ensure that screening visit procedures (with the exception of obtaining informed consent) are completed within 14 days of the randomization visit.. Potential subjects will be approached during a regularly scheduled clinic visit, upon referral from another physician, or in response to research advertisements. Those who call in will participate in a short phone pre-screen. This allows us to determine if the person fits the ...

Underage pregnancies. I cant believe that lowering the age of consent for sex is a topic up for debate on BBC radio tonight.. In Iconoclasts, a Radio 4 discussion programme, law professor John Spencer will argue that the current age of consent - 16 - should be lowered because it criminalises half the teenage population.. What rubbish - that makes as much sense as saying, lets decriminalise shoplifting because there are so many thieves! Its a lazy, irresponsible approach that sidesteps the problem.. The age of consent may be difficult to enforce but that isnt a compelling argument for changing it.. In fact, there are so many good reasons for keeping it at 16 I hardly know where to start.. Around four in 10 girls and more than three in 10 boys in Britain have had underage sex, according to the World Health Organisation..

The term informed assent describes the process whereby minors may agree to participate in clinical trials. It is similar to the process of informed consent in adults, however there remains some overlap between the terms.. In adult medical research, the term informed consent is used to describe a state whereby a competent individual, having been fully informed about the nature, benefits and risks of a clinical trial, agrees to their own participation. National authorities define certain populations as vulnerable and therefore unable to provide informed consent, such as those without the necessary cognitive, psychological, or social maturity to understand these benefits and risks. The oft-reported belief that minors (for the purposes of this discussion, read minors as persons under the age of 18 years) are considered a vulnerable population and therefore may not autonomously provide informed consent, is actually an oversimplification that does not always hold true. In fact, the requirements for ...
Ben Goldacre, The Guardian, Saturday 23 October 2010. This month it was revealed that US academics funded by NIH deliberately infected mentally incapacitated patients, prison inmates, sex workers, and soldiers from Guatemala with syphilis, gonorrhea, and chancroid during the 1940s.There has been outrage, and rightly so. Since the 1940s, regulations on consent have been tightened up.. But its interesting to look at who participates in medical trials today, and whether we would regard them as giving fully informed consent, without coercion.. Recruiting patients into clinical trials is generally difficult, and often a majority of those who are eligible decide not to participate. This is, in some respects, a systemic problem, as we have been very poor at embedding the idea of routinely resolving uncertainties about which treatments are best into the everyday practice of medicine.. My point is not that these studies are dangerous, because they are not. But in the US, where many are still unable to ...

3.2 Special Considerations. 1. Illiteracy or Visual Impairment An impartial witness should be present during the entire face-to-face interview when the participant or the LAR is unable to read the consent document i.e. illiterate or visually impaired. An impartial witness is a person, who is independent of the research team, who cannot be unfairly influenced by people involved in the trial, who attends the informed consent process if the participant or LAR cannot read the consent form and who reads the consent form and any other written material supplied to the participant.. 2. Non English Speaking Participants The Principal Investigator is responsible for ensuring that non-English speaking participants are provided with a consent form/document in the most appropriate language or an appropriate translator is present during the informed consent process.. 3. Exception to Written Evidence of Consent The REB recognizes that written evidence of consent may not always be appropriate if the ...
Consent forms are the principal method for obtaining informed consent from biomedical research participants. The significance of these forms is increasing as more secondary research is undertaken on existing research samples and information, and samples are deposited in biobanks accessible to many researchers. We reviewed a selection of consent forms used in European Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) and identified four common elements that were found in every consent form. Our analysis showed that only two of the four most commonly found elements in our sample of informed consent forms were required in UK law. This raises questions about what should be put in informed consent forms for research participants. These findings could be beneficial for the formulation of participant information and consent documentation in the future studies.

A patients consent is an integral part of any surgical or interventional procedure. Providers have both a legal and ethical obligation to ensure that the elements of adequate informed consent are met and documented. Many hospitals still collect patient signatures prior to procedures on paper consent forms. Documents must be manually transported, scanned by hand, and archived often hours or even days after they are signed. The inherent inefficiency of this process results in human error, lost documents, and delays in care. Healthcare leaders want a more efficient, more compliant method of documenting consent to treatment. Clinical leaders want a more streamlined workflow for staff and patients. Risk, quality, and HIM managers want to ensure the document is properly archived. In order to address these needs, many hospitals are finding eForms and workflow technologies are well-suited to replace the paper process and enable the standardization and efficiency they require. For
In Faulknor v. Shnayerson (273 A.D.2d 271 [2000]), the Second Department treated it as though expert testimony was necessary for both parts of the informed consent test. There, the Court held a case of malpractice based on lack of informed consent may not be submitted to a jury in the absence of expert medical testimony to support the qualitative insufficiency of the consent i.e., that a reasonably prudent person in the patients position would not have undergone the treatment if fully informed. While there has been case law at the trial level that recognizes the apparent disparity between the Departments (Tullo v. Tartack, 325/98, 2002 WL 31925590 [N.Y. Sup. Ct. July 24, 2002]), the Second Department has never subsequently relied on Faulknor for this proposition. In addition, some subsequent cases seem to imply that the Second Department does not require expert testimony on the second prong of the analysis, but make no mention of Faulknor (see e.g., Sarwan v. Portnoy, 51 A.D.3d 655 [2nd Dept. ...
The Prior Informed Consent Regulation (PIC, Regulation (EU) 649/2012) administers the import and export of certain hazardous chemicals and places obligations on companies who wish to export these chemicals to non-EU countries. It aims to promote shared responsibility and cooperation in the international trade of hazardous chemicals, and to protect human health and the environment by providing developing countries with information on how to store, transport, use and dispose of hazardous chemicals safely.. This Regulation implements, within the European Union, the Rotterdam Convention on the prior informed consent procedure for certain hazardous chemicals and pesticides in international trade.. The PIC Regulation applies to banned or severely restricted chemicals listed in Annex I, containing industrial chemicals, pesticides and biocides, for example, benzene, chloroform, atrazine and permethrin. The export of these chemicals is subject to two types of requirement: export notification and explicit ...

CONTEXT: Informed consent to research remains a complex issue, while sometimes staying difficult to obtain, even in the general population. This problem may be maximized with patients suffering from schizophrenia. OBJECTIVE: This paper summarizes available data in the literature about informed consent for research involving patients suffering from schizophrenia. METHOD: Medline and Google Scholar searches were conducted using the following MESH terms: schizophrenia, informed consent and research. RESULTS: Studies using dedicated standardized scales (e.g. MacCAT-CR) revealed a decrease in the capacity to consent of patients with schizophrenia when compared with healthy individuals. Keeping in mind that schizophrenia is an heterogeneous disorder, patients with the lowest insight as well as those with the most severe cognitive symptoms appeared more impaired in their capacity to consent. Such a poor capacity to understand and consent to trials was shown linked with alterations in decision-making. For these

Two key international conventions are aiming at reducing the adverse health and environmental aspects of pesticides: The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), created to reduce and eliminate 12 POPs of which nine are pesticides, and The Rotterdam Convention on the Prior Informed Consent Procedure for Certain Hazardous Chemicals and Pesticides in International Trade. The Rotterdam Convention facilitates information exchange on a broad range of potentially hazardous chemicals and gives importing countries the power to decide whether or not they want to receive future imports of certain chemicals ...
Written by Aliyah Frederick, Anna Johnston, Jack McKeown, Freddie Yopp, Victoria Page, and Ashley Boccio. Harriet Washingtons Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present illustrates how the idea of informed consent has historically been a hotly debated topic within the medical field. Prior to the mid-twentieth century numerous abuses were committed by medical researchers in which subjects provided no consent to experimentation or were not fully informed on what experiments entailed. Much of this research was dangerous and had the potential to, and did, cause bodily harm and even death. To protect patients from abuses such as these, in 1947 the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) issued an informed consent policy. This policy legally mandated that patients provide informed consent before they could participate in any research. Washington quotes the 1947 AEC policy that in order for an experiment to qualify as protecting ...
Little is currently known about the higher order functional skills of patients with Parkinson disease and cognitive impairment. Medical decision-making capacity (MDC) was assessed in patients with Parkinsons disease (PD) with cognitive impairment and dementia. Participants were 16 patients with PD and cognitive impairment without dementia (PD-CIND), 16 patients with PD dementia (PDD), and 22 healthy older adults. All participants were administered the Capacity to Consent to Treatment Instrument (CCTI), a standardized capacity instrument assessing MDC under five different consent standards. Parametric and nonparametric statistical analyses were utilized to examine capacity performance on the consent standards. In addition, capacity outcomes (capable, marginally capable, or incapable outcomes) on the standards were identified for the two patient groups. Relative to controls, PD-CIND patients demonstrated significant impairment on the understanding treatment consent standard, clinically the most ...
Informed consent for telemedicine in South Africa: A survey of consent practices among healthcare professionals in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal
Background An average of eight thousand five hundred elective surgeries are carried out annually at the Kenyatta National Hospital. Before any invasive procedure, an informed consent is obtained from the patient or the next of kin after pre-operative counselling has been carried out. This study aimed at determining whether patients were adequately informed on the key components of informed consent and establishing whether patients were satisfied with the process of obtaining informed consent for elective surgery at the Kenyatta National Hospital. Methodology The study was structured as a cross-sectional survey in which a questionnaire was used to collect data from randomly selected adult patients scheduled to undergo elective surgery. The questionnaire was administered by the principal investigator. Data was then be analyzed using SPSS Version 15. Results Majority of the patients were informed on the nature of surgery (97.2%) the reason for surgery (98.2%) and the anaesthesia to be administered ...

There is a type of study called a cross-over design, in which one group receives the comparator treatment initially (standard-of-care plus a placebo) and then the experimental treatment in a second phase of the study. The other group receives the experimental treatment first, and then the comparator treatment in the second phase. Participants can talk to the study team about whether or not a cross-over design is planned.. In addition, there may be an option to receive the experimental treatment after the trial is over, in what is often called a trials extension phase. Participants can also review with the study team whether this is an option.. The design of a clinical trial will be described in the Informed Consent Document that participants sign before enrolling in a study. Participants should carefully review the Informed Consent Document, and also feel free to ask any questions that they may have about the study design, including the use of placebos, before the trial starts both with a ...

This information relates to pemetrexed when taken as a single agent. These effects may also be anticipated when pemetrexed is used together with other chemotherapy drugs, but certain side effects may occur more frequently, such as decreased platelet counts, hair loss, decreased kidney function, injection site reactions, intestinal obstruction, gastrointestinal bleeding, and formation of blood clots in deep veins and serious skin reactions. Other chemotherapy drugs and treatment modalities such as radiation will also have their own, often unique, side effect profile and this should be taken into consideration when considering the likely effects of the treatment as a whole.. The majority of these side effects may be experienced by patients receiving most other chemotherapy drugs. Complications of some of the above side effects may lead to life-threatening events such as infections, kidney failure, bleeding, and possibly death. There is slight risk of severe allergic reaction to the drug, which may ...

An investigator shall seek such consent only under circumstances that provide the prospective subject or the representative sufficient opportunity to consider whether or not to participate and that minimize the possibility of coercion or undue influence. The information that is given to the subject or the representative shall be in language understandable to the subject or the representative. No informed consent, whether oral or written, may include any exculpatory language through which the subject or the representative is made to waive or appear to waive any of the subjects rights, or releases or appears to release the investigator, the sponsor, the institution, or its ...
based on informed consent. Instead, the case was brought on the theory that the physicians failure to obtain the patients informed consent constituted substandard, negligent medical care. The forensic psychiatrists expert testimony emphasized that the pro forma signing of a consent form did not constitute true informed consent, especially in light of the physicians alleged disregard of the patients expressed wishes and their inaccurate representation of the risks and benefits of the approach she preferred. The psychiatrist also explained to the jury how Meadors life history left her vulnerable to experiencing the denial of informed consent as a highly traumatic event. Having coped since childhood with serious illnesses in her family, Meador had viewed doctors and nurses as nurturing figures who helped her gain control of potentially tragic situations. She had learned that choice was still possible even amidst illness and death. She had even been inspired to become a nurse herself and to ...
In the consideration stage, interested caregivers evaluate the service first before deciding whether they will use the service or not. The decision is based on information available about the intervention/service. In the context of a trial, this decision would be influenced by information provided in an informed consent document. In the context of a commercial product, caregivers may base the decision on information in an advertisement. Peer pressure and social norms (expectations from others, including health professionals) may also play an important role in this stage. Caregivers who decide to use the service will act upon the decision. For example, they will sign an informed consent form, purchase a service, or order/create a user account.. The second stage is the initiation stage, in which the caregivers start to use the service. To measure this usage behavior, one can for example measure how quickly a user begins using a newly introduced or purchased service (e.g., first login or first ...

An important issue in business ethics is whether participants in any economic exchange have full autonomy. This means that any market transaction should be based upon the informed consent of all the participants. But while academic business ethicists have held that this should characterize business generally, they have seldom seemed concerned with informed consent when it comes to their own business - higher education. Students traditionally have had to select majors without detailed information about average salaries and job prospects for graduates with degrees in those various majors.
Jill at Unnecesarean opened her blog for random comments regarding Informed Consent. This is what I wrote:. How informed is informed consent? Who gets to decide the informing phase has ended and the deciding phase has begun? Who picks the studies/statistics/anecdotal/experiential information imparted? What if English is the second language or the patient has a 10th grade education or the doctor speaks as if hes talking to a medical student? Who is the moderator that translates or calls a time out for clarifications?. I live these questions -as a provider and as a pro-VBAC woman. The two hats I wear often look the same, but, as with OBs, there can be vast differences based on The Law and how it affects each side. When variations of the norm, or complications, arise in a pregnancy, its imperative of me to help the woman become informed about her situation so that, to the best of her knowledge, she can make an autonomous decision. There is rarely a decision that I havent had my hand or say in, ...

Biobank consent models – are we moving toward increased participant engagement in biobanking? Berge Solberg, Kristin Solum Steinsbekk Department of Public Health and General Practice, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway Abstract: Engagement, involvement, and active participation are buzzwords used in today's ethical debate on research biobanking. There are a variety of context-sensitive governance frameworks for research biobanks. However, many biobanks, especially large-scale population-based ones, seem to endorse a framework of broad consent, participation with minimal or no ongoing engagement, and no return of results. An alternative vision of involvement and active participation in this type of research has become increasingly visible in the literature. The problem, seen from the biobankers' perspective, is that the alternative vision might be costly, cumbersome, and risky, while the prevailing system for governance will maximize the scientific
Iwould be interested in what the other criteria the study included. I doubt that physicians would be for performing medical treatments/procedures without consent, their liability insurances would never go for something like that. In cases of threat of immediate death, is the only situation that an informed consent can be ommitted prior to that treatment. Did the study involve any patients that were patients in such a crisis situation? If not, the study is sort of biased. It is really doubtful a physician would be worried about research on informed consent while in a patient emergency situation. Paramedics should never participate in administering research medicine, puhleez. Also, it is the physicians responsibilbity to explain the informed consent in laymans terms to the patient or guardian of patient and I dont think that ---I am going to cut an incision in your stomach right here and open up your belly and remove the gallbladder and then sew you back up--for cholecystectomy, would be to hard ...
Only limited data are available on consent and satisfaction of patients receiving specialized neurocritical care. In this study we (i) analyzed the extent of retrospective consent to neurocritical care--given by patients or their relatives--depending on functional outcome one year after hospital stay, and (ii) identified predisposing factors for retrospective agreement to neurocritical care. We investigated 704 consecutive patients admitted to a nonsurgical neurocritical care unit over a period of 2 years (2006 through 2007). Demographic and clinical parameters were analyzed, and the patients were grouped according to their diagnosis. Functional outcome, retrospective consent to neurocritical care, and satisfaction with hospital stay was obtained by mailed standardized questionnaires. Logistic regression analyses were calculated to determine independent predictors for consent. High consent and satisfaction after neurointensive care (91% and 90%, respectively) was observed by those patients who reached

As it stands now, parental consent is required for these screening programs, but in some cases mere passive consent is legal. Passive consent is obtained when a parent receives a consent form and fails to object to the screening. In other words, failure to reply is considered affirmative consent. In fact, TeenScreen advocates incorporating their program into the curriculum as a way to by-pass any consent requirement. These universal, or mandatory, screening programs being called for by TeenScreen and the New Freedom Commission on Mental Health should be resisted ...
