Consent Form Summary Information Sheet
The Health Sciences IRB developed the Information Sheet for Research Subjects as a means of providing potential subject with a condensed version of information detailed within a consent form. The IRB produced this sheet to help investigators improve their consent process in light of the increased complexity of many research studies and the lengthening of consent forms. The intent of the form is to highlight the critical information subjects need to know about participating in a specific research study.
Effective date October 19, 2005
This form was developed to supplement the consent form and is especially recommended for use with complicated studies when consent documents are longer than 5 pages. The Information Sheet for Research Subjects should be written at an 8th grade level or lower. This form would be stamped by the IRB with an expiration of approval date as other consent documents.
Note: As of September 2005, the Clinical Research Unit (CRU), formerly known as Clinical and Translational Research Core (CTRC), requires use of this form for any protocol using its services.
