The project celebrated its final event: Towards the future of informed consent in clinical research.

Yesterday, the i-CONSENT team finally presented its guidelines to improve informed consent in clinical studies. After 4 years of intense work and study in the field of clinical research and bioethics, the team celebrated the project’s final event.

During the event, partners presented the process of elaboration of the guidelines and the relevance and convenience of the document. Also, a summary of its main contents and other project products, equally important for researchers. In addition, Prof. J. J.M. van Delden, full professor of medical ethics at the University Medical Center of Utrecht University, and former president of the Council of International Organisations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS), and Lisa Diependaele, Policy Officer for the European Commission, shared their views on today’s informed consent and the i-CONSENT contribution to it. At the end, a high level discussion on bioethics, law, gender perspective and multiculturalism was stimulated.
