Informed Consent Templates

Informed Consent Guidelines

Per the IRB 2014 Policy, the IRB is responsible for stamping all approved informed consent documents with the URI logo, project reference number, and approval/expiration information. When submitting an informed consent document, be sure to leave the bottom right corner of the document BLANK as this is the location where we upload our stamp.

When submitting a continuing review for your project, it is required that you submit:
— The most recently used consent document that has been signed and whited out so that all personal information is no longer visible.
— A new, clean copy of the consent document with the bottom right corner BLANK.

When submitting an amendment/modification for your project, it is required that you submit:
— The most recently used consent document where all new revisions have been highlighted.
— A new, clean copy of the revised consent document with the bottom right corner BLANK.
