Principal Investigators are required to obtain informed consent from their research subjects/study participants. This is usually a statement or form provided to participants for them to sign.
When designing an informed consent, PIs should include the following elements in their informed consent documents (see below for templates):
- Required Elements of informed Consent Compliant with 2018 Common Rule
- Sample Informed Consent for Online Survey
- Sample Informed Consent for Children
Under very specific circumstances, PIs can request a Waiver of Informed Consent. Find more information here.
