Informed Consent Toolkit

Informed consent is a process of communication between a patient and healthcare provider that ultimately results in the patient’s authorization or agreement to undergo a specific medical intervention or participate in a clinical trial. It is at the forefront of a battery of protections aimed to ensure that research participants are fully respected as human beings and made aware of the purpose, procedures, risks, and benefits of a study. This toolkit offers resources for healthcare providers and for families and caregivers specific to informed consent.
