COVID-19 has made the in-person consenting process logistically challenging and potentially an activity of increased risk. Remote consent can allow the investigator/designee and potential participant to engage in the informed consent process similarly to how it would be conducted in-person, without the challenges of meeting in-person. These conversations may occur via telephone, conference call, video conferencing, or eConsent platform. Participants would still reference the informed consent document during the conversation, which can be sent to the participant prior to engaging in the informed consent conversation. Remote consent may be performed as a hybrid process (e.g., consent is documented on paper), or virtual (i.e., informed consent form is electronic and an electronic signature is used).
