2015 Nancy Weaver Emerson Lectureship in Medical Ethics
Benjamin S. Wilfond, MD
Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 6 p.m.
Nasher Museum of Art
Free and open to the public. Reception to follow.
Recent draft federal guidance about research evaluating standard medical treatments suggests that such research can pose substantial risk and requires an approach to informed consent similar to what is used for investigational new drugs. Dr. Wilfond's presentation will frame this debate and present data from surveys of public attitudes about research on medical practices (ROMP) that suggest the public looks at this research very differently from regulators and IRBs.
