Planned Emergency Research and Exception from Informed Consent
While informed consent is imperative to ethical research, U.S. federal regulations permit institutional review boards (IRBs) to waive consent under specific conditions. Planned emergency research – often referred to as research involving an exception from informed consent (EFIC) – is one example.
This white paper outlines considerations for those involved in planning, designing, conducting or reviewing EFIC studies, including:
- Defining planned emergency research
- Regulatory criteria for IRB approval
- Balancing therapeutic advances and public trust in research
Plus: The paper concludes with a bonus “Points to Consider” appendix, which suggests helpful questions for sponsors and IRBs to ask regarding EFIC research.
