What are the ethical challenges? SIM
From Clare Relton
The standard formulation of consent, as typically demonstrated in the conventional RCT, requires adequate disclosure by the researcher and a corresponding level of comprehension on the part of the potential participant, in order for consent to be autonomously given or refused. Alternative clinical trial designs that involve different models of consent must demonstrate that such consent meets an equivalent ethical standard. This talk outlined some of the challenges that this may pose to staged models of consent.
