AbstractDeveloped by the The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, this module was prepared for instructors who want to include in their teaching a discussion of informed consent in the research setting. It provides foundational information, ethical reasoning, applications, questions, discussion points, and additional readings that are designed to give the instructor enough information to plan lectures, discussions, or activities.
