All the legal aspects nursing professionals should be aware of in a research environment”

Biomedical Research in Health Sciences is a key instrument to improve and raise the quality of life, life expectancy and well-being of citizens.

However, the interests of the participants must take precedence over any other interest, an aspect included in the November 12 41/2022 Law, which regulate patient autonomy and the rights and obligations regarding clinical information and documentation.

Informed consent becomes an essential element when the preclinical phases of research have been completed and the subject voluntarily expresses their intention to participate in research, after having understood the information provided about the research.

The Independent Clinical Research Support Office is the point of contact at the Spanish Agency of Medicines and Medical Products (AEMPS) for investigators and sponsors of non-commercial studies to receive advice on different aspects: technical, regulatory or administrative, when necessary.

The AEMPS, as a state agency attached to the Ministry of Health, is responsible for guaranteeing, from a public service perspective, the quality, safety, efficacy and reliable information about medications and medical devices, from their research to their use, in the interest of protecting and promoting social health.
