Expanded access, also known as compassionate use, is a treatment mechanism regulated by the FDA. You will learn
about the types of expanded access, and the processes and requirements for using unapproved test articles,
such as drugs, devices, and biologics, to save a patient’s life, or to treat a serious disease or condition
for which no alternative therapy exists.

The content of this interactive online course will provide a comprehensive overview of regulatory, Good Clinical
Practice, and Northwell Health requirements when consenting a research participant in your research study.
Topics include the consent process and consent documentation. After completion of this course, you will understand
the basic requirements when obtaining consent and proper techniques and tips to enhance your process. This
course will take about 45 minutes to complete; it will save your work when you exit and prompt you to continue
where you left off when you re-enter the course.
