Next RPN Event
 

August 20th, 2020

Many teams have had to move to eConsent in order to continue their studies during COVID-19.  Ceci Chamorro, a Manager, Information Systems with DOCR, will discuss how to quickly get started with eConsent in REDCap. She will discuss specific resources, where to find information to get started, and highlight the dos and do nots of eConsenting.  Ceci will also provide a brief overview of key considerations such as: sending the eConsent to the HIM group to be uploaded into the participant’s medical record, CFR Part 11 compliance, assent, LARs, and non-English consents.

What You Should Know When Switching to eConsent
Speaker: Ceci Chamorro
