Templates and Required Forms

 

Please note:  The consent formats are required; if your study's consent form(s) do not fit within the required format, your project will be returned for corrections. These templates can be modified as necessary, but should retain the headings to comply with the regulations (unless it states that the heading can be removed). Also ensure that your consent form is written in laymen's terms--the general guide for adult consent documents is that they be understandable at the 8th grade reading level. A valuable tool in writing your consent forms is the website http://www.plainlanguage.gov/

For every study revision, please check back on this page for updated versions of forms, and be sure to submit a tracked changes version of your updated documents with your IRB submission if an updated consent template is present on this page. If you are unsure and need assistance in creating/modifying your consent form(s), please contact our office at 850-644-7900 so that our staff can assist you.
