15/07/2022. In July 2022, the Consent Working Group of the Medical Informatics Initiative (MII) published the English-language publication "Data protection-compliant broad consent for secondary use of health care data and human biosamples for (bio)medical research: Towards a new German national standard" in the Journal of Biomedical Informatics. Thus, the international expert community is also informed about the Broad Consent of the MII.
The authors (Zenker et al.) emphasise in the conclusion: "Both the resulting broad consent text and the national consensus process are relevant for similar activities internationally. A key challenge of aligning consent documents with the various stakeholders was explaining and justifying the decision to use broad consent and the decision against using alternative models such as dynamic consent. Public transparency for all secondary use projects and their results emerged as a key factor in this justification. "
