Elements of a Successful Informed Consent Video

The Elements of a Successful Informed Consent training video was created by the Human Subjects Protection Team of the NIMH Office of the Clinical Director. In the video, actors portray a clinical investigator and a potential research participant engaged in an informed consent discussion about a clinical research protocol. A narrator introduces the required elements of an effective informed consent discussion and makes communication and contextual recommendations. This video is intended for use by novice clinical investigators and clinical research staff.
