Additional safeguards that may be included in a social and behavioral study may include:
- Remove all direct identifiers from the data as soon as possible.
- Requiring a legally authorized representative to provide signed consent for an incapacitated subject.
- Frequent monitoring of the subject’s heart through ECG after administration of the study drug.
- Requiring pregnancy tests before administration of the study drug.
Remove all direct identifiers from the data as soon as possible.
The Identifiers from the data should be removed because the personal information of the person does not matter who is participating in the survey, the identifier includes name, phone number, address, email address, social security, medical record number, etc. The main motive is to do data collection from that study.
Or for additional safety measures, all direct identifiers should be removed from the data as soon as possible to avoid any possible security breach that could lead to any harm against the vulnerable.
