Consent and HIPAA GuidanceThe Committee has developed multiple templates for use. In addition, please refer to our Consent Form Guidance document and our Consent Form Checklist for additional guidance.
As of 09/01/16 the HIPAA authorization language will be included within the consent form. All new consent submissions received on or after this date must include the HIPAA language. Any protocols that are currently active must update the consent form either at time of next amendment or continuing review whichever comes first. Please refer to the "Consent for Medical Study" template found below to develop or modify the study consent form.
