Rubber Meets the Road: Partnering with the Patient – Informed Consent

This webinar was recorded on Wednesday, March 20, 2019.

Before participating in a clinical trial, study staff must administer the Informed Consent Form, whereby patients are informed about what to expect throughout the duration of the trial, as well as when, how, and why. It is crucial for individuals participating in a clinical trial to have a comprehensive understanding of the nature of the trial, including the risks and benefits, as well as any treatment and/or procedures as applicable. This level of detailed information will help a patient determine whether they wish to participate, on their own terms.

This webinar, presented by GuideStar’s Vice President of Research Operations, Maria Chester, will dive deep into the specifics of informed consent requirements and helpful tips to overcome some challenges. It’s not just a form, it’s a process!
