Valid consent to research is never just a signature on a page, and eConsent isn’t just obtaining that signature electronically. Informed consent involves providing potential participants with adequate information, helping them understand this information in their own time and using a range of available resources, and an ability to ask questions about the study and their involvement.
The impacts of COVID-19 on the conduct of clinical trials has resulted in a hastened adoption of new ways of approaching consent to research. These changes are a welcome advance in practice, but bring with them a series of practical and ethical challenges that can be best overcome by raising awareness and dispelling myths.
Join us as we ask our expert panel to address these issues and provide examples of best practice application of E-Consent.
