The detection and treatment of diseases has made enormous progress in recent decades. This is the result of many years of research. The University Children's Hospital Basel (UKBB) therefore sees itself as a treatment center and research institution with the goal of continuously optimizing the detection and management of diseases for the benefit of patients.
According to Swiss law, patient data and residual material from samples from routine clinical care may only be used for research with the documented consent of the patient or parent/legal representative.
For this purpose the University Children's Hospital Basel has introduced the research consent.
According to the Human Research Act (HRA), written and verbal informed consent from patients or parents/legal representatives is required before personal data from routine clinical practice and/or residual material from patient samples can be used in encrypted form for research projects.
The research consent UKBB enables that
What does encryption mean?
The patients or parents/legal representatives receive an information sheet with a personalized consent form and are informed about the research consent by trained personnel. There will be an opportunity for questions during the interview. Subsequently, a voluntary decision can be made whether or not to give consent. The decision is recorded in writing on the consent form. For children under the age of 14, the signature of the parent/legal guardian is mandatory. From the age of 14, the sole signature of the patient of legal age is sufficient. If patients reach the age of 18 and are cared for at the UKBB, they will be asked again.
The consent/refusal given is noted. This ensures that the patients or parents/legal representatives are not asked repeatedly. The signed consent form is archived.
The UKBB Research Consent allows the further use of coded, non-genetic and genetic personal data/biological residual material from clinical routine . It can also be used for registries under certain conditions.
Researchers planning a project with the Research Consent at UKBB can contact the Pediatric Research Center (PRC) for an initial consultation. In this way, the most effective way to use the research consents can be planned and the necessary requirements discussed.
