eConsent: Definitions & Details

Sharon Rosenberg: Apr 15, 2019 12:25:38 PM

 eConsent is a technology-driven, patient-engagement tool that aims to improve site/patient discussions and clinical trial efficiency. It should provide a detailed overview of the clinical trial process in the patient’s own language, while including guided instructions for completing the eConsent and allowing the patient to electronically sign and optionally download the signed consent document. This helps to promote better comprehension of content by incorporating multi-media components like audio and video, or documents with voice-overs in the patient’s own language. The process allows patients to explore trial-specific words and concepts at their own pace through linked text, which can improve the quality of discussions between site staff and patients in a less intimidating way.”
