Are you a clinical research team member involved in obtaining informed consent from human research volunteers?

If you or your team want to learn more about best practices and strategies for obtaining informed consent, sign up for the Tufts CTSI training Obtaining Informed Consent: A Practical Approach. This blended synchronous/asynchronous workshop requires completion of a short (approximately 20 minutes) online pre-work tutorial, delivered through the Tufts CTSI I LEARN platform, plus participation in a live workshop on June 23. The live portion of the training will take place over Zoom and provide an opportunity to practice obtaining informed consent with members of Tufts CTSI’s Stakeholder Expert Panel. Panel members are former research participants and individuals with experience as simulated patients. This is a learning and skill building opportunity for you and will not be evaluated in any way.

Participants must complete all of the pre-work on Tufts CTSI I LEARN in order to receive the Zoom link for the live training. While in the live workshop your active participation is required; including participating in the roleplay, providing feedback to others, and engaging in group discussion. This will ensure that you get the most out of what this training has to offer. All attendees will be expected to participate in the live role play exercise.

Clinical research coordinators, investigators, research fellows, research nurses, and anyone involved in obtaining informed consent are encouraged to attend.

By the end of this training, you will be able to:

  • List the essential elements of informed consent.
  • Demonstrate (using plain language) explaining the informed consent process, in a virtual setting.
  • Demonstrate multiple techniques to verify participants' comprehension.
  • Identify 2-3 key considerations for obtaining informed consent in a remote or virtual setting.

Enrollment is limited due to the hands-on nature of this training. After enrollment, participants will be asked to upload proof of completion of CITI basic training in human subjects research.
