Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Component Type: Session

In recent guidance, both the European Commission and the Article 29 Committee overseeing the GDPR have suggested that consent should not be the preferred basis for processing data in clinical trials. This panel will explore why this view was reached and what its implications are for the conduct of research and relations with research participants. We will in particular look at how the ethical and legal safeguards that govern clinical research, viewed from the perspective of the privacy regulator, and how these relate to the principle of accountability under GDPR.
