Research Involving Human Subjects
Consent Form Template
The Office for
Human Research Protections (OHRP) states that “informed consent
is one of the primary requirements underpinning research with
human subjects; it reflects the basic principle of respect for
persons.” In most cases, informed consent is documented by the
use of a written consent form approved by the IRB and signed by
the subject or the subject’s legally authorized representative.
As part of the IRB approval procedure, investigators must include a Consent Form with the IRB application, when applicable. The CSULA Consent Form Template is provided for guidance. Please consult the IRB Application Guidelines for more information on developing a consent form for your project.
- Request for Convened (Full) Committee (more than minimal risk) applications should be submitted to ORAD at least 30 days prior to the IRB meeting (see the IRB Meeting Schedule).
- Exempt and Expedited applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis.
