INFORMED CONSENT IN CLINICAL RESEARCH. Regulations and guidelines governing the conduct of clinical research require informed consent essentially to be obtained from each human subject prior to research initiation, and all researchers are bound to follow these regulations. Also, prior to conduct of clinical research.
Although the specific definition of informed consent may vary from state to state, it basically means that a physician (or other medical provider) must tell a patient all of the potential benefits, risks, and alternatives involved in any surgical procedure, medical procedure, or other course of treatment, and must obtain the patient's written consent to proceed.
All medical research studies, including those involving adults who lack mental capacity, should comply with accepted principles of good practice, including the Declaration of Helsinki and relevant European and UK legislation.
informed consent consent of a patient or other recipient of services based on the principles of autonomy and privacy; this has become the requirement at the center of morally valid decision making in health care and research.
