Using the e-Consent Framework in IU REDCap

Using the e-Consent Framework in IU REDCap


The IU Research Electronic Data Capture (IU REDCap) offers a self-managed, secure, web-based platform designed to support data collection and data management for research, operations support, and quality improvement projects. REDCap's easy-to-use, intuitive features allow users to rapidly build and manage secure online surveys and databases.

This webinar is an informative presentation/discussion about using the e-Consent Framework in IU REDCap. Obtaining written consent is a crucial step for engaging participants in research, but managing paper forms can be a challenge. REDCap offers a user-friendly electronic method to obtain and manage participants’ consents through the new e-Consent Framework and PDF Auto-Archiver.
