“Informed Consent and Duty to Follow Protocols”
Physicians, medical students, preceptees, and interns must obtain IRB approval prior to conducting experimental research and must obtain informed consent from all participants. The informed consent must identify the party treating the patient (e.g., physician, preceptee, intern) and state that an IRB has approved the research protocol. The informed consent must also allow patients or their legal guardian to acknowledge that they are voluntarily participating in the study, that they may withdraw their participation at will, that they understand the treatment(s) and procedure(s) they will receive, and that they understand the risks and benefits of their participation.
