Note 11/12/14: All consent templates (and HIPAA) that reference Fletcher Allen Health Care or FAHC have been revised to reflect the new hospital name. We have taken this opportunity to update some other areas of our consent templates. Please be sure to reference these prior to your next protocol submission.
