Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The informed consent is an important tool in conducting clinical research as it serves to protect all parties involved in the clinical trial. This fact has been recognized since the early beginnings of research projects. The role of the clinical research nurse (CRN) in procuring informed consent, however, has not been clearly defined or generally accepted at this time. This article will focus on the essential content of the informed consent and the value of the CRN in assuring the completeness and effectiveness of this important document. Included is an example of a consent form which covers the elements of appropriate informed consent as discussed in this article.
