OSP Celebrates Clinical Trials Day; Releases New Resource Related to Consent Language for Studies Using Digital Health Technologies

Today, May 20th, is Clinical Trials Day; a day to reflect, recognize, and celebrate all that has been achieved through clinical trials and the participants, communities, researchers, clinical staff, and others who make these accomplishments possible.  Clinical trials are at the heart of all medical advances.  On behalf of OSP, thanks to all those who make clinical research possible.

As we look to the future of clinical research, advances in digital health technologies are providing new opportunities to bring trials to participants.  To assist in the responsible deployment of these technologies,  OSP, through an NIH-wide collaboration, has developed and released Informed Consent for Research Using Digital Health Technologies: Points to Consider & Sample LanguageThis resource presents general points to consider, instructions for use, and optional sample language for the research community. This resource will best be used to inform research teams and Institutional Review Board (IRB) members who are planning, reviewing, or conducting research that studies or uses digital health technologies.
