29 Jun CEN publishes its guide on patient consent for research and innovation projects (EHTEL, EN)
In June 2023, CEN – the European Committee for Standardization – published a final version of its guide on patient consent for use in research and innovation projects. The guide’s full title is “Digital health innovations – Good practice guide for obtaining consent for the use of personal health information for research and innovations”. It is formally known as CWA 19933 2023 (E).
The guide has materialised thanks to the active collaboration among several Large Scale Pilot Projects in the Health and Care Cluster, and coordinated by the PHArA-ON project. Several large-scale pilots were involved in the endeavour. They include ADLIFE, InteropEHRate, SHAPES, SMART BEAR, as well as around a dozen other institutions and individuals.
