Informed Consent

In this learning activity, you will develop an informed consent as part of an ethical treatment of program participants. An informed consent is an essential part of the ethical treatment of health promotion program participants. This is true whether or not you plan to use data collected in the program in a research study. Fill in the “Informed Consent Template” to support a hypothetical educational program you might develop to address the objective you wrote and others like it. While much of the information you include in this template will have to be fictitious, consider the contents of a program intervention you may one day create to address similar needs and objectives. Each of the items on the template is an important part of a complete informed consent and must be responded to. Click on “Sample Informed Consent” to see a sample (included below).
