Does your research work involve recruiting human research volunteers from diverse populations?

Join Tufts CTSI for a hands-on workshop practicing informed consent conversations with interpreters and participants whose primary language is not English. The workshop is blended synchronous/asynchronous with a live session Thursday, October 26, 2:00PM-4:00PM via Zoom. Research staff who participate in consent conversations are encouraged to learn more and register on I LEARN by Wednesday, October 25.

Participants must complete all of the pre-work on Tufts CTSI I LEARN in order to receive the Zoom link for the live training. While in the live workshop your active participation in the live role-play activity is required. You will also learn through providing feedback to others and engaging in group discussion. This will ensure that you get the most out of what this training has to offer.

Clinical research coordinators, investigators, research fellows, research nurses, and anyone involved in obtaining informed consent are encouraged to attend.

By the end of this workshop, participants of Parts 1 & 2 will be able to:

  • Identify when a participant needs an interpreter in order to obtain informed consent.
  • Identify the correct procedure for working with an interpreter to obtain informed consent.
  • Demonstrate at least three communication techniques during obtaining informed consent conversations with an interpreter.

Enrollment is limited due to the hands-on nature of this training. After enrollment, participants will be asked to upload proof of completion of CITI basic training in human subjects research.
