Informed consent is a standard part of research studies. As part of the IRB application process, researchers create a sample consent form that is submitted with their study protocol. This consent form will be used with participants to inform them of the study and, once the study has been explained, the participants will sign the informed consent form. As part of the process, the informed consent form needs to include a description of what the study involves, including risks and benefits, if the study is confidential, and how the study data is used.

The Unit 3 Assignment will include two parts;the consent form and the paper. Both parts should be presented in the following manner with a title, introduction, conclusion, and reference page. Submit the assignment as multiple attachments including the following:

  • 1-2 page paper in a Word document
  • Completed Informed Consent Form

Using the template provided, create a sample informed consent form to conduct a study of interest to you (you can create a study from a topic you have discussed in prior weeks, but this is not required). The goal is to create a draft of an informed consent form similar to that which a researcher would submit to an IRB board for review. Discuss in 1–2 pages how you would design this study to adhere to ethical guidelines. Be sure to include the five ethical principles and how your study will conform to them.Discuss one or two ethical issues that could arise during your study and how you would respond to these issues, as a researcher. Be sure to operationally define your variables and state what scales of measurement would be used, including description of why that scale was chosen.I AM ATTACHING TEMPLATE
