Waiver of Signed Consent

Waiver of Signed Consent

Waiver of signed consent

The requirement to obtain signed, written consent from participants can be waived, and an alternate consent process can be approved.
An alternative consent process can be:

- An oral consent process: This would require an oral consent script be provided to the IRB and be read to participants; participants will provide verbal consent to participate and a signature will not be collected.

- An online consent process: An electronic consent form which includes that "By continuing on to the survey..." (or similar) participants indicate their consent to participate.

Please note: if the Consent Form Wizard or other signed consent template is used, the default signature lines will need to be removed, as no signature will be obtained.
