Research with Pregnant and Lactating Persons: Mitigating Risk and Liability

Pregnant and lactating persons are frequently excluded from clinical research, and often have to make treatment decisions without an adequate understanding of the benefits and risks to themselves and their developing fetus or newborn baby. The Committee on Developing a Framework to Address Legal, Ethical, Regulatory, and Policy Issues for Research Specific to Pregnant and Lactating Persons will hold a workshop to discuss how institutions and organizations make risk-benefit decisions regarding the inclusion and exclusion of pregnant and lactating persons in clinical research, and the role of liability, risk management, and trial insurance in those decisions. The workshop will also review existing compensation schemes for research-related injuries and potential to scale these models to serve the needs of research participants.
