Consent Templates

Print Print


As part of an ongoing, multi-year project to overhaul HSD’s consent-related policies, requirements, and resources, we are developing new consent templates. Over time, we will continue to add different types of templates in an attempt to capture the broad range of research conducted by UW investigators.

HSD encourages but does not require researchers to use any of these templates. Additionally, we encourage researchers to use the Consent Considerations in the GUIDANCE Consent and TIP SHEET Consent: Written Consent Materials 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 that is mostly likely to assist those subjects with deciding whether to enroll.

HSD is also developing consent examples to accompany the templates. The examples, like the templates, will be published over time.
