COVID-19 and Ethical Challenges for Clinical Research - The Multi-Regional Clinical Trials Center of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard

June 1, 2020 @ 12:00 pm 3:00 pm

Virtual Event

The COVID-19 pandemic has raised novel ethical issues and intensified existing ones in clinical research. From the abundance of ethical issues, the MRCT Center identified 3 topics to initiate discussion at the June 1st Bioethics Collaborative: 1) clinical equipoise and the standard-of-care for COVID-19 research, 2) clinical trial prioritization amidst a scarcity of resources, and 3) the role of the Institutional Review Board in COVID-19 research. Attendees guided discussion beyond these issues over the course of the Bioethics Collaborative.
