The All of Us Consent Process

The All of Us Research Program is committed to helping potential participants make informed decisions about whether to participate. By giving potential participants information about how the program operates, reasonable expectations, and participants’ rights, the program ensures that people who decide to join do so because it’s right for them and the nature of their participation. This ensures that people make an informed decision about whether to join.

Before signing forms saying that they consent to participate, participants view a series of screens with text and short videos that explain the program’s goals, how it works, and what participation entails. See the consent forms and videos below to learn more.
