It is only possible for us to develop resources for participants and researchers with the support of people from across the research and general community.
Your feedback and input to the project will make future templates more a relevant and effective information tool.
The National Participant Information and Consent Form (PICF) Framework provides a nationally consistent model for the communication of participant information.
The Framework is designed so that patients are treated respectfully and to assist mutual understanding with the research team. There is a variety of supporting resources to support health service organisations, clinicians and researchers.
The National PICF has been implemented and adopted in research active hospitals, healthcare services and research organisations nationally since its launch on the 4th of May 2016.
The Framework is intended for use by Australian health service and research organisations across all settings and sectors and describes the three tiered consent model. It can be used to inform new participant information and consent policies and modify existing ones.
The Framework is divided into three parts:
- Part A describes General Information.
It includes the rationale and scope of the Framework, as well as key questions and considerations for the participant.
- Part B describes the specific Trial Details.
- Finally, Part C is the Consent Form.
