Informed Consent

2021 - The Emily Carr University Research Ethics Board (ECU-REB) has prepared guidelines to assist researchers in designing research consent processes that are respectful, useful, and fair—in other words, ethical—for the research participants as well as everyone else involved in research. 

All research that involves human participants must include a consent process that has been approved by the ECU-REB. A research consent process is more than a consent form. If you are designing a consent process for your research project, this new resource will help to ensure that your research meets current standards for consent, and can be approved by the ECU-REB.
