REDCap and eConsent

The eConsent function within REDCap involves accessing the consent document as well as recording informed consent using an electronic device such as a computer, tablet or other touchscreen device.

Researchers who want to utilize eConsent will need to prospectively report this to the UIC Office for the Protection of Research Subjects during the review process, whether the project requires IRB approval (expedited review, convened review) or acknowledgment of a claim of exemption.
