For Clinical Trials, start with the basic format provided in Model Consent Form (MCF) 442 above. Because of the complexity of most clinical trials, it is important to focus on the process of informing individuals about the study in a way that is easy to understand. A useful and thorough consent template addressing an array of clinical trial procedures is provided by the National Cancer Institute at While this template was developed for cancer trials, the sample language addressing complex medical procedures is useful for many types of clinical trials.
