The MRCT Center Return of Individual Results Work Group has formulated key principles and recommendations on the return of individual results to research participants from clinical trials in which the participants were enrolled (see above). A number of unanswered questions, however, related to return of individual results to research participants persist. For example, who should communicate urgent results and urgent incidental findings to individual research participants? The lead or site investigators? The referring health care provider? The study sponsors? This meeting explored the pragmatic considerations underlying the return of individual results to research participants and axes of communication.
