This workshop will cover the 5 Ws of obtaining truly informed consent. We begin by looking at What should be covered through an examination of the correspondence between the HRP-503 Protocol Template and the HRP-502 Consent Template. We will discuss Who should be involved, When and Where different parts of the consent process should take place, and how to conduct the consent process so that understanding and free choice are achieved. Why each of the above-mentioned areas are important will be discussed.

Finally, a guide for systematically developing an Informed Consent Process covering the above factors will be presented. A team exercise asking each group to share its analysis of a unique scenario involving a difficulty in achieving truly informed consent will conclude the workshop. This workshop series is free and open to all students, fellows, faculty and staff at UB and the Buffalo Translational Consortium.
