AHRQ accepting comments on Informed Consent for hospital procedures 'til 29 Oct 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.

The comment period for this information request has been extended to 29 October 2014, and comments can now be lodged here (click "SUBMIT A FORMAL COMMENT" in the top right-hand corner):

https://www.federalregister.gov/arti...omment-request

As noted in the Federal Register listing, the AHRQ only "received one substantive comment" the when submissions were first called for back in July, so this would appear to be a good opportunity for proponents of genital-autonomy in the U.S. to make a case to policymakers, addressing the issues identified above.
