Welcome to the Informed Consent guidance index page. The University of Utah IRB offers guidance, checklists, and models of documents to help you design your research consent process.
As you familiarize yourself with the resources available here, we also invite you to view the introductory video and FAQ at the bottom of this page.
NOTE: If you submit your consent documents to the IRB as a Word Document, the watermark footer field is still required. If you submit your documents as an Adobe PDF, the watermark field is NOT required, but you should leave 2" of blank space at the bottom of the document to leave room for the IRB approval image.
