HSD does not review or approve consent materials for exempt research but researchers are expected to provide subjects with particular information about the research prior to their enrollment.
HSD has created the TEMPLATE Consent Exempt Research to assist researchers with providing information about the research to subjects. For additional support, the attached document contains several examples of what consent forms can look like for exempt studies, depending on the study design.
For exempt studies, researchers are not required to use the template and should not submit consent materials in Zipline. If consent materials are submitted, HSD will not review or approve them.
