Assessing Capacity to Consent to Research
Register for the course in Training Hub.
The course is accredited by the University of Minnesota Office of Continuing Professional Development and is certified for 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Study personnel participating in the assessment process for studies that will have the potential of involving adults with absent, diminished, or fluctuating capacity to consent are required to complete this course. However, we encourage everyone who participates in the consent process for studies enrolling adult participants—whether or not the participants have absent, diminished, or fluctuating capacity to consent—to complete the course.
Boot Camp for Clinical Research Coordinators
The ACRP CRC Boot Camp provides over 50 hours of foundational knowledge specific to the role of the clinical research coordinator (CRC). Facilitated by ACRP professionals, this intensive five-day program allows CRCs to practice what they learn and afternoon activities are structured around typical, real-life scenarios faced by CRCs. Further, the program blends theory and practice to ensure CRCs can immediately and effectively contribute to the ethical conduct of human research.
To ensure the quality of the participant experience, the Boot Camp will be limited to 40 attendees with a preference for coordinators with at least one year of coordinator experience at the University or its affiliates (e.g. M Health Fairview, Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare).
