Consent Form Templates and Guidance

New applications must be accompanied by HREBA Main Consent Template.  Please note that some descriptions and explanations in the templates may be minimally adjusted and some may not (templated language).  If templated language is changed the submission will be returned to the study team.

  IMPORTANT:  Memo regarding compulsory use of Main Consent Form Template

If your study has been previously approved by the University of Alberta HREB or the University of Calgary CHREB, and it has been transferred to HREBA oversight, HREBA does not require the currently approved consent forms to be revised with the exception of the inclusion of the HREBA contact information which must replace the contact information of the previous Research Ethics Board.
