Forms and Templates

*No Separate Key Information Consent Template (2,000 words or less)


This template is intended for studies that can be explained to subjects with a consent process/form using 2,000 words or less. It is UW IRB policy that because they are shorter, these forms don’t need a distinct Key Information section.
