Informed Consent Process

Informed Consent is a process of collaborative education and decision making that a prospective research participant must go through before freely volunteering to participate in a research study.  The Principal Investigator, his/her research staff and the participant need to clearly understand the informed consent process. The Medical College of Wisconsin, with support by the National Institutes of Health, presents interactive web sites on the Informed Consent Process.
