Summary
Objective
In view of the need to apply term free and informed consent (IC) in clinical research involving humans, in accordance with the Brazilian ethical standards (CNS Resolution No. 466/2012), it is necessary to assess whether this practice is being effective and can be improved. The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of the IC in electronic format (e-IC), regarding its feasibility and suitability, as a complement to the written/physical consent form.
Methods
Quantitative-qualitative research with a questionnaire instrument.
Results
Greater retention of information and fewer wrong answers were observed after the application of the e-IC.
Conclusions
The use of e-IC is of great value to research participants in Brazil.
