Waiving Consent

Generally, informed consent is given to a research participant and the documentation noted on the Institutional Review Board (IRB) form. To be eligible for the waive informed consent the research topic should be of a benign nature that does not involve written consent such as a blood draw or if there is a potential for a confidentiality breach. If the research involves no more than minimal risk to the subjects it should not, “adversely affect the rights and welfare of the subjects; the research could not practicably be carried out without the waiver or alteration and whenever appropriate, the subjects will be provided with additional pertinent information after participation” (HHS.gov, n.d.).

There maybe issues with the waiver stipulation because scientists or whosoever is performing the research may amend the research theme, method of collecting data or processing information to attempt to bypass the strict guidelines recommended for informed consent.
