Consent Examples

ABOUT THIS PAGE

As part of an ongoing, multi-year project to overhaul HSD’s consent-related policies, requirements, and resources [1], we are developing examples of what consent forms can look like depending on the study design.  Over time, we will continue to add examples in an attempt to capture the broad range of research conducted by UW investigators.

HSD is also developing new consent templates [2] for various types of study designs. The templates, like the examples, will be published over time.

Additionally, we encourage researchers to use the Consent Considerations in the GUIDANCE Consent [3] and TIP SHEET Consent: Written Consent Materials [4] to design consent forms and processes that: (1) are written from the perspective of the subject population being enrolled; and (2) emphasize the Key Information [5] that is mostly likely to assist those subjects with deciding whether to enroll.
