Update on PRIM&R’s response to the ANPRM

by Elisa Hurley, PhD, education director

As many of you may know, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has extended the public comment period on the advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM). The revised closing date for submitting comments to DHHS is October 26, 2011.

If you are interested in what others having been saying about the proposed changes to the “Common Rule,” instructions for browsing comments may be found here.

PRIM&R’s ANPRM Task Force is still hard at work drafting and compiling comments. We will continue to update you on our progress here, on our website, and on Twitter. If you’re not already following us, you can find us @primrconnect.

In the meantime, we encourage you to submit your comments to DHHS. And of course, we’d still love to hear what you and your colleagues are thinking about the proposed changes in the ANPRM. Please feel free to post your comments below.
