Our colleagues at PRIM&R (Public Responsibility in Medicine & Research) have compiled several resources to help those interested in the proposed changes to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, or the Common Rule. These include an NPRM Resources page, with a chart comparing the current Common Rule with the proposed changes by section, and other materials. PRIM&R has also recently released a freely available (till December 11, when it becomes available only to members) annotated version of the current Common Rule, which provides the regulatory text, hyperlinked to further information in the form of guidance, frequently asked questions, and regulatory resources from the Office for Human Research Protections.
PRIM&R will be blogging about the NPRM in the coming weeks, and we will cross-post here. Stay tuned.
