Novel Approaches to Informed Consent

 Speakers: Lisa Connally, Aalap Doshi, & Alan Tait
Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research

Wednesday, March 20, 2019
11am - 12pm

439 Light Hall

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

 

This webinar will review novel approaches to the informed consent process. The speakers have vetted and standardized a shortened informed consent (2 page) in conjunction with an illustrated pamphlet for enrolling volunteers into University of Michigan (U-M) Biorepository projects. They will discuss the vetting process and the projects that utilize this combination to enroll volunteers at U-M. The speakers will also discuss a new technique they are testing utilizing Augmented Reality in Conjunction with the Informed Consent for children and families in research. This project looks at using augmented reality to help children and families understand the elements of consent in the form of a book with a character named Remy who goes on an adventure (space, safari, or super hero) chosen by the volunteer. Knowledge is tested by several interactive games as the character learns about health research and informed consent.

Members of the Nashville Chapter of SOCRA Education Committee will be on hand to lead a local discussion.

STRIDE and eConsent: Moving Towards Personalized Informed Consent

 

Speaker: Colleen Lawrence, PhD, CCRP
Manager, Translational Research
Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (VICTR)

STRIDE (Strengthening Translational Research in Diverse Enrollment) is a collaborative project between Vanderbilt University Medical Center, UMass and UAB. The project is focused on increasing participation by under-represented communities in clinical trials. Through the use of existing REDCap features and the creation of new tools such as, Avatars, a video library of commonly consented research procedures, and development of a part-11 compliant "virtual lockbox" to house consents, we are supporting efforts aimed at developing a more personalized informed consent process via a REDCap electronic consent (eConsent) platform. In this presentation, we will describe the STRIDE project, emphasize the need for an improved informed consent process, highlight features and customizations for personalization and security, developed as a part of STRIDE, and discuss the future direction of the eConsent platform.
