Dramatization of the Informed Consent Process: Good Theater or Bad? is a Master Series program delivered in two parts that SHOULD BE taken as a set to maximize the learning experience. Part I will be delivered as a one-hour breakout session. Part II will be delivered immediately following Part I, also as a one-hour breakout session.
This session covers Part I, which addresses the complex interaction between researchers and potential research participants during the informed consent process. Speakers will dramatize two examples of the informed consent process. The two presentations will differ in the quality and completeness of the informed consent process. After each dramatization, speakers will engage the audience in a discussion on the strong and weak aspects of the informed consent process they just watched.
Part II engages you in an interactive discussion on the most important aspects of the informed consent process. Attendees will be able to practice administering consent to each other using another fictional study. While the attendees are immersed in this activity, speakers will rotate around the room to observe and comment on their interactions. The presenters for this session are experienced researchers and instructors who have performed consent dramatizations multiple times for hundreds of students studying to be clinical researchers.
