Should there be a National System to Compensate Subjects for Research Related Injuries?
Clinical research is designed to identify improved methods to treat, avoid, and cure illness and disease. To achieve this vital goal, research subjects undergo procedures and interventions that can pose a range of risks. Please join us to discuss whether there should be a national system to compensate any subjects who experience injuries due to their research participation, and how such a system might be implemented.
The program should be of interest to individuals involved in medical research, as well as those interested in important issues in bioethics.
