The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) works to protect the rights, welfare, and well being of volunteers who participate in research. One way to further this mission is to provide the public with basic information about research and research participation, so potential volunteers can make informed decisions about participating in research.
Learning about research participation can be challenging. OHRP developed and compiled resources to help you make the best decisions for yourself and your loved ones. They answer some common questions and suggest other questions you may want to ask if you are considering participating in research. Additionally, resources may be useful to research staff to facilitate and improve the Informed Consent process.
The various resources include Informational Videos, FAQs, Protecting Volunteers and Additional Resources.
