The requirement to obtain the legally effective informed consent of individuals before involving them in research is one of the central protections provided for under the HHS regulations at 45 CFR part 46. WOU's Institutional Review Board has provided Samples for your use in developing consent forms for your Study.
Research using Non-English Speakers
If the anticipated research participants or individuals providing consent for minors do not speak English or will be unable to understand the Consent Form written in English, the consent form must be translated into a language understandable to the participants or parents/guardians.
Department of Health and Human Services regulations for the protection of human subjects require that informed consent information be presented "in language understandable to the subject" and, in most situations, that informed consent be documented in writing.
Technical answers to questions about Informed Consent can be answered at the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP).IRB Home | Do I Need to File? | CITI Human Subjects Training | Level of Review | IRB Application | Consent or Assent Documents | FAQs
