To consent or not to consent that s the question

To Consent or Not to Consent: That’s the Question!

Issue: Subjects wish to withdraw from a study; however, for purposes of the research study, the subject is requested to undergo follow-up procedures or to have their health followed after they have withdrawn.


What started this discussion

What started this discussion?

  • NCI’s consent template previously included the following statement:

  • “In the event that you withdraw from the study, we request you allow us to continue to follow your health and continue to collect clinical data from your medical records.”


What is withdrawal

What is “Withdrawal?”

  • “Withdrawal” refers to a subject who signed a consent form, but discontinued participation prior to his/her completion of the study.


Consent

Consent?

  • If the subject is being asked to complete only end-of-study/final study visit procedures

    • This is normally covered in the main informed consent document and would not require obtaining an additional consent

  • If the subject is being asked to complete additional procedures after expressing desire to withdraw from the study

    • This requires obtaining consent, specific for this purpose, at the time of the subject’s withdrawal


45 cfr 46 protection of human subjects

45 CFR 46 Protection of Human Subjects

  • General Requirements for Informed Consent

    • “A statement that participation is voluntary, refusal to participate will involve no penalty or loss of benefits to which the subject is otherwise entitled, and the subject may discontinue participation at any time without penalty or loss of benefits to which the subject is otherwise entitled.”


What does this mean

What does this mean?

  • Subjects must be given the option to agree or not agree to be followed after they have withdrawn from the study; thus, consent must be obtained specifically for this purpose.


The consent document

The Consent Document

  • The additional consent should be submitted when a new study is submitted for review and approval by the IRB

  • The additional consent must include all of the required elements of informed consent, UNLESS,

    • A modification to the required elements for informed consent is requested via Section XIII of the summary safeguard statement AND is approved by the Board prospectively
