The incidence of unsolicited findings has increased with the arrival of new techniques for studying biomaterial. In close collaboration with the department of Human Genetics and the CMO-light, building blocks [LS1] have been developed to assist with documenting patient information and informed consent regarding unsolicited findings. There is also a template form developed for the withdrawal of previously given consent. For more information please contact the Commissie Mensgebonden Onderzoek (cmo@iwkv.umcn.nl).
