Last Chance to Say Your Word on NPRM

I posted “Informed about Changes to Research Consents?” on 11/15/15. You now have until 1/6/2016 at 11:58pm EST to send your comments about the changes that will affect hundreds of thousands of patients, researchers and institutions (at least). PLEASE send in your comments!

Here’s how:

  1. Read my blog post on 11/15/15 to refresh yourself, and feel free to use any part for your comments.
  2. Look at the summary of changes, according to the US Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP).
  3. Read some of the public comments that have already been posted (so far, there are 957 comments). Here is an example of one of them from the Genetic Alliance – feel free to use any part for your comments.
  4. Click if you want Tips for Submitting Comments (go to bottom of page and click on .pdf file).
  5. Post YOUR Comments at this link!
  6. Feel free to share your comments below on this post if you want to discuss them.

I’m finishing my comments now and will post them… but don’t hold your breath – create your own comments NOW! GO FOR IT!
