Led by Andrea Johnson
11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in UHS 8B60

New HIPAA regulations and guidance, which take effect on March 26, 2013, allow HIPAA authorizations for research studies to be built into the consent form in nearly all cases, even when the research has optional components. They also permit authorization for future research. This means fewer forms to submit and a more integrated process. Come learn about:

  • The changes to the regulations;
  • The new combined consent and authorization form templates; and
  • How these changes affect past, present, and future studies.
