Recruitment, Consent and HIPAA

PrintPrintPDFPDF
Review the IRB's guidelines on recruiting study subjects.
 
You must obtain and document informed consent from prospective research subjects before initiating any screening or study procedures (with few exceptions).
 

There are special consent requirements for research that involves non-English speakers or certain vulnerable populations, such as children and pregnant women.

Subjects also may need to sign a HIPAA authorization form for research and/or receive a copy of the Experimental Subject's Bill of Rights.
