Research Consenting Workshop

Research Consenting Workshop

Informed consent is a fundamental aspect of human subjects research, but this concept involves much more than a signed consent document. In this workshop, participants will become familiar with research consenting regulations, institutional requirements, and best practices. Participants will also learn tips and tricks for creating accessible, effective consent documents and conducting successful consent conversations through a mix of interactive lectures and practical, hands-on activities.


This workshop is designed to help participants…

  • Understand the importance and historical context of current informed consent regulations and practices
  • Learn how to effectively consent research subjects
  • Become familiar with the elements of informed consent and create clear, comprehensive consent documents​
  • Successfully navigate special consenting situations that may require additional accommodations or considerations

Intended Audience
