Researchers often encounter challenges in the process of making a determination to report incidental findings in research. What is the obligation of investigators to disclose a finding of potential health or reproductive importance discovered during research but beyond the stated aims of the study? Participants will review the ethical, social and regulatory issues involved with incidental findings, emphasizing perspectives on genetic research. Relevant HIPPA regulations and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) will be assessed. The genetic findings disclosure process preferred by the University will be explained and how to outline a study-specific plan for IRB submission will be discussed.
Our synchronous classes will be structured as:
- Offered live via Zoom, wherein participants will attend and participate in the 1-hour live lecture/presentation.
- Participants will be required to work pre-class and post-class activities outside the classroom.
- These activities can include: readings, videos, etc.
