Papers and guidelines on patient and public involvement
Patient information sheet template and guidance
Patient information sheets (PIS) are a key tool in ensuring that patients are able to give informed consent before participating in a trial. MRC CTU at UCL has developed guidance and a template for writing a PIS for adult trials. The guidance and template use research evidence to ensure that the PIS is clear and easy to understand. If you would like to download any of the PIS documents, please enter your details in the pop-up window that will appear when you click the link. You will then be able to download the relevant file(s). We will use this information to help us monitor the uptake of this template.
If you have any problems downloading these documents, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
