AHRQ accepting comments on Informed Consent for hospital procedures ('til 8 Sep 2014)

The U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ) is accepting public comments on the proposed project "Improving Hospital Informed Consent With an Informed Consent Toolkit", until 8 September 2014:

http://www.regulations.gov/#!documen...RDOC_0001-0485 (there is a 'Comment Now' icon in the top right-hand corner.)

Amongst other things, the AHRQ advises the federal Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the efficiency and efficacy of treatments and administrative procedures, so this is a particularly good opportunity for readers in the U.S. who want to address Medicaid's continued subsidisation of neonatal circumcision, to practice developing arguments that will carry weight with policymakers.

We have a number of threads over at F-R.net variously tagged AHRQ, ethics, informed consent and Medicaid, which might be a good starting point for readers interested in researching and drafting a submission.
