HSIRB Informed Consent Template
This template should be used when a consent form has been provided by an industry sponsor or cooperative group. This document can also be used when relying on an external (non-USC) IRB (except for the National Cancer Institute Central IRB).

This template provides sections in which to insert the consent language provided by the sponsor. It does not include examples and is a shorter template.

This template should be used when there is no consent form from an industry sponsor or cooperative group. This template includes the essential elements of consent, instructions for use, the California Subjects Bill of Rights, conflict of interest requirements, considerations for long term specimen use and other institutional requirements.
