Informed consent for caregivers
The Informed Consent Form provides a summary of the clinical study (including its purpose, the treatment procedures and schedule, potential risks and benefits, alternatives to participation, etc) and explains the rights of participants. It is designed to begin the informed consent process, which consists of conversations between you, your loved one, and the research team.
If your loved one decides to enroll in the study, official consent is given by signing the document. If your loved one is interested in participating in a clinical study where the caregiver is also an active participant, then you will both be required to sign individual Informed Consent Forms.
