Procedure Of Taking Informed
How will we take consent
• Written
• Oral
• Video
• The Consent Process:
• The subject/representative must enter the date
of signature on the consent document, to verify
that consent was obtained before the subject
began participation in the study.
• If consent is obtained the same day the study
begins, the subject's medical records must have
document that consent was obtained prior to
• A copy of the consent document must be
provided to the subject and the original signed
consent document should be retained in the
study records.
• From whom the consent will be taken?
-Individual informed consent from all competent
adult participants in research.
-In the case of an individual who is not capable of
giving informed consent, the permission of a
legally authorized representative in accordance
with applicable law.
-Waiver of informed consent is to be regarded
as uncommon and exceptional, and must in
all cases be approved by an ethical review
Be cautious:
1. In case of children;
Consent from a parent or legal representative of each
child and the agreement (assent) of that child
has been obtained to the extent of the child’s
capabilities and, a child’s refusal to participate
or continue in the research will be respected.
2. Mental and Behavioural disorders patients:
the consent of each subject has been obtained to the extent of
that person’s capabilities, and a prospective subject’s
refusal to participate in research is always
respected,unless, in exceptional circumstances, there is no
reasonable medical alternative and local law permits
overriding the objection; and,
. In cases where prospective subjects lack capacity to consent,
permission is obtained from a responsible family member
or a legally authorized representative in accordance with
applicable law.
• Commonly recognized
taking Informed consent.
1. Use of non-identifying data, since it implicates no
reasonable expectation of privacy.
2. Prior consent by the patient,as an exercise of
patient autonomy.
3. Research authorized by law.
4. Clear public interest.
