Informed consent is the communication process through which a researcher explains the details of the clinical trial or research study to a potential research subject, ensures that the information is communicated in a way that is readily understandable to the potential subject, and obtains agreement from that person to participate in the trial/study. It is not just a bureaucratic step, but rather a critical part of human subjects research.

This session will focus on regulatory requirements, special considerations, and the active process of obtaining consent. 

Presented by Cheryl Danton, Managing Director, Social & Behavioral Sciences Institutional Review Board (SBS IRB)

Presentation will be followed by Q&A.
