HRPO Seminar: Waivers of Informed Consent

April 10, 2018 -

12:00pm to 1:00pm


Join Erin Grabowski, HRPO Quality Assessment Specialist, and learn more about the different waivers of informed consent and HIPAA available under the regulations. Waivers aren't just for chart reviews and can be a useful tool in certain research studies.  

This presentation will go over the waiver to document informed consent, full waiver (or alteration) of informed consent, and waiver of HIPAA authorization.  The session will explain each waiver and discuss the situations in which they can be applied, as well as what is needed to justify them. 

This session will not cover the exception to the requirement to obtain informed consent for research involving emergency procedures (EFIC).
No pre-registration is required and all are welcome to attend. For more information or to submit advance questions, contact Melissa Miklos by email at
