Informed Consent Templates

The Regional Committees for Medical and Health Research Ethics (REK) have published templates for subject information and informed consent forms for research participants on their webpages. There are a number of different templates; "Ordinary" consent from adults, consent to participation in drug trials, deputy consent where the patient is not competent to give consent, and age-appropriate informational letters.

It is recommended to use these consent templates when applying for pre-approval from REK, both because the templates cover the need for what the consent should contain and because experience shows that REK prefers these templates to be used.
REK's consent templates can be found here: (NB! The REK portal does not work with Internet Explorer, use another browser such as Edge or Chrome).
