Workshop on Revisions to the Common Rule for the Protection of Human Subjects in
Research in the Behavioral and Social Sciences

9:30 Welcome
Robert M. Hauser, Director of Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education (DBASSE)

Committee Member and Staff Introductions

9:45 Sponsor Perspective: Charge and Expectations of the Study
Kelli Craig-Henderson, Deputy Division Director; Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences directorate; National Science Foundation

10:15 Most Critical Issues - Identification and discussion of most critical and feasible issues addressed by the proposed revisions to Common Rule that should be the main topics of the workshop

Examples of issues that have surfaced as key:
• Adopting HIPAA standards for the protection of privacy and data security
• Obtaining consent for all future uses of biospecimens, whether identifiable or not, and for re-consenting people for further use of existing research data.
• Using new category of “excused” research to replace the “exempt” category and possibly imposing additional regulation relating to data protection and consent on this new category.
• Calibrating the levels of IRB review to the levels of risk (e.g., breaking out psychological risk from information risks; considering categories of risk and harm)
• Using standardized consent form
• Regulations covering all research, regardless of funding sources, at institutions receiving some federal funding from a Common Rule agency

11:15 Implications of Proposed Rules - Identify possible workshop speakers to explain/clarify how the proposed rules (in identified critical issue areas) could affect different types of research studies and methods

12:00 Working Lunch
Continued Panel Discussion from prior session
