Electronic-Consent (e-Consent) is a platform for consenting patients or research subjects either on site or at home using a computer-based consent form rather than traditional paper documentation. Consent forms can be implemented in a REDCap survey via computer, mobile phone, or tablet.

To use the e-consent module, please request a separate project to host your e-consent data. E-consent data should be hosted separately from your research project. This will better protect identifiers and increase the security of your data. In addition, we recommend using a "yes/ no" to signing the consent form to store signature, as recommended by the REB.

It is the responsibility of the research team to get the use of e-consenting in their project approved by the Research Ethics Board prior to implementation. In your ethics application, add this statement to your consent form Your electronic consent form will be stored in the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute’s secured network in Vancouver, BC. Only authorized personnel will be able to access it.”
