Informed Consent in Action

"Informed Consent in Action" is a 60-minute training DVD designed to demonstrate best practices for recruiting participants and obtaining informed consent in community-based research. Five experienced community research partners share lessons learned. Vignettes show what community-based research looks like, and group discussions highlight key points and raise issues for further discussion.

The Facilitator Guide summarizes each segment of the DVD and provides discussion questions and key summary points for each vignette. Additional discussion questions are also provided for use in conjunction with study protocol-specific training.
