You’d think after covering the same event over and over again (13 consecutive years?? … whattttt?), I’d have run out of things to write about.
But I’m looking forward to next month’s American Health Lawyers Association conference on legal issues affecting academic centers and teaching hospitals—and not just because there’s a new Shake Shack and a poké stand next to the hotel. But the timing of the conference should make it really interesting.
You see, the two-day annual event starts exactly six days after Jan. 19, the day the revisions to the Common Rule should, probably, maybe go into effect. That’s the published effective date of the big overhaul to the human subject protection regulations. Unless the federal government can somehow get the proposal for a yearlong delay finalized beforehand, that date stands. But considering the proposed rule hasn’t been even been published yet … well, we’ll see.
Anyway so either way, by Jan. 25, we’ll know. And on that morning the AHLA conference will this session:
The speakers include Laura Odwazny, who is the legal counsel on the Common Rule among other things in the Department of Health and Human Services.
Heather Pierce, the senior regulatory counsel for the Association of American Medical Colleges who’s been one of the top nongovernment resources on the Common Rule, will also be on the panel along with Kristen Rosati, an attorney who knows a ton about HIPAA and research (There is a big, complicated carve out in the Common Rule revisions when the privacy rule under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act applies).
Jan. 25 is also the same day the National Institutes of Health’s single institutional review board policy goes into effect … but that’s for another day and another blog.
