What is the research consent form for?
- This consent gives us permission to call and ask how you are doing and if you would be willing return for long-term follow-up in the future. The purpose is only for collection of information.
- Your treatment will not be affected whether you agree to participate or not.
- Treatments change over the years, and we (the physicians) can look back at this information and learn from it in the future.
- If you are contacted in the future, you still have the right to refuse to participate at that time.
- You may have a copy of the signed form.
FOR EXAMPLE: If we are conducting a study that requires 10-year follow-up on your condition (leg fractures, hip or knee replacements, etc.), this form gives us permission to call you and ask how you are doing.
