Voluntary Agreement Research

Federal rules do not require the signature of a cookie if the search uses a standard informed consent document containing all the necessary elements of informed consent. The rules also do not require the investigator`s signature when a standard consent document is used. Federal policy only requires that the declaration of consent be signed by the subject or the subject`s legal representative. However, a witness is required if the BRI authorizes the use of a brief written consent document. In this situation, the witness must observe the oral presentation, sign the brief declaration of consent and sign a copy of the summary of the oral presentation approved by the IRB. In addition, the subject or representative authorized by law must also sign the summary and the short form of the declaration of consent. The FSU has the same federal policy. Consent forms submitted by the researcher are stamped by the IRB office as soon as the researcher`s BRI filing has been approved. All researchers must use IRB-stamped declarations of consent with their researchers.

The research protocol for the informed consent study was reviewed and approved by the institutional audit committees of all participating institutions in the United States and Nigeria. All individuals have obtained oral informed consent. Participants were given a fact sheet translated into Yoruba and sent back to English for Nigeria to explain the study. At both sites, scientific collaborators have been trained to obtain one that conforms to culture and language, in accordance with informed consent. Research assistants in Nigeria were fluent in English and Yoruba. Consent was obtained in English or Yoruba on the Nigerian site, depending on the participant`s comfort with the languages. Informed consent on participation in scientific research is strongly based on the concept of individual autonomy and personal decision-making. Yet in Western and non-Western environments, people often talk to others about medical decisions, including participation in scientific research. Our results indicate that in environments like Nigeria, especially in rural communities, some women may obtain permission from their husbands before giving consent. However, it is important to note that only half of Nigerian married women said they needed a spouse`s permit, indicating that this is not the general norm of behavior of married women, even in more rural areas like Igbo-Ora. In addition, the need for a spouse`s permit does not necessarily reduce the potential for voluntary participation in research.

Married women and men, both in Nigeria and the United States, can talk to their spouses for advice on participation in research. Some research has the potential to detect child abuse and neglect. A behavioral study for children at risk could do this, and the study on art and reading skills would probably not affect this possibility. If the potential exists, researchers should inform parents and older children, during the consent process, that the confidentiality they can offer is limited by Florida`s reporting obligations to report child abuse. Psychologists do not deceive potential participants about research that is reasonably expected to cause physical pain or a strong emotional load. APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct. Valid from 1 June 2003. In Nigeria, declarations of consent to genetic study were translated into Yoruba and returned to English, the official language of Nigeria. The declarations of consent were read and discussed by scientists who are fluent in English and Yoruba. The studies in the United States and Nigeria were similar, but not identical. Therefore, the consent forms were slightly different, but all the consent forms described the genetic purpose of the study and contained information about voluntary participation and resignation from the study.

Informed consent depends on whether an individual understands exactly the nature and purpose of the study. . . .
