When Pollution Is Personal: Handbook for Reporting Results In Biomonitoring and Personal Exposure Studies

When Pollution is Personal

Our handbook for reporting results to participants in biomonitoring and personal exposure studies. In the past researchers usually didn't tell study participants their own chemical exposure results except for the few chemicals that have medical guidelines, like lead and mercury. But increasingly researchers recognize that participants have a right to know. This handbook aims to help guide other study teams, including researchers, advocates, IRB members, and public health officials, through decisions on whether and how to report study findings to participants.
