Program Description:

Informed consent is the process where the researchers share key facts about a research study with a person to help them decide whether or not to take part in the research study. Taking part in research is voluntary and people have the right to refuse to take part in a research study. In some emergency situations, people who are taking part in a research study are not able to give their consent due to their condition. The XePOHCAS study is a research study in which patients who have been successfully resuscitated after cardiac arrest may be included in the study without their consent. Henry Wang, MD, Professor Emergency Medicine at UTHealth will talk about the importance of planned emergency research in general and the XePOHCAS trial in particular.

Upon completion of this Seminar, attendees should be able to:

  • Understand the FDA regulations (21 CFR 50.24) and FDA guidelines on research involving emergency exception from informed consent requirements.
  • Apply the FDA regulations and guidelines to the XePOHCAS trial.
  • Analyze whether the XePOHCAS trial meets the FDA regulations and guidelines for planned emergency research.
