Research Participant Contact Card

Research participant contact cards provide research participants with a project's IRB study number and basic information about who to contact when they have questions or concerns about a study. The cards complement the informed consent form and easily fit in a wallet or purse.

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) recommends providing these cards to participants, the parents/guardians of minors participating in research and Legally Authorized Representatives (LAR) providing consent to participate in research on behalf of another. The IRB may require the use of the contact card for some studies. Researchers may choose to offer additional contact cards to participants in case they want to share them with family and friends.

Direct questions about the use of the participant contact card to Bethany Hansen, senior quality analyst, Quality Assurance, hans1142@umn.edu.
