Informed Consent

The Process of Consent

Since the central requirement for human subjects research is that people participate voluntarily, the informed consent process is one of the most important parts of planning a research proposal. The process must assure that the potential subject understands the study and its risks and benefits and can certify his or her willingness to participate.
