ConsentTools helps clinical research professionals understand and adopt three evidence-informed practices for informed consent in clinical trials. These practices assess and improve participant understanding of clinical trial information, and assist professionals in appointing legally authorized representatives (LARs) when necessary.
You can explore the toolkit by topic below, or complete a text-based learning module on all three topics.
