Creating and using questionnaires as consent forms

You can also use questionnaires to create consent forms in order to send patients multiple consent forms.

How to create a consent form from an existing template

You can use the Consent Form template we have created. To do so, navigate to HEP >  Questionnaires > Browse available templates:

Then search for the template called 'Consent Form - General'. Click on it and then click Create a questionnaire from this template:

You can then modify the template to meet your needs.

 

How to create your own Consent Form

You can also create your own consent form from scratch by following the instructions outlined below.

From the Embodia dashboard navigate to HEP >  Questionnaires > Add questionnaire

'

 

In the New questionnaire window, name your form, and set type to Consent form.

Check the box next to 'Active' to make your consent form available for use, then click Submit. 

 

Click on New item to start creating your consent form.

 

 

You can now add a New question or New instruction.

 

First, create a New instruction, where you add the static text (i.e. the content of the consent form).

 

Then create a New question. Set Question type to Multiple answers or Single answer, and check the box next to Required, then click Submit. 

Your question can be something along the lines of "Check the box below to acknowledge that you fully understand the above consent statements and are entering into them voluntarily." 

Then click Submit.

 

Now add one answer to the question with a value of something along the lines of "I give my consent."

 

You can now Preview your consent form.

 


You can also add a required question of type Free text > Short text that says: "Print your name below to acknowledge that you fully understand the above consent statements and are entering into them voluntarily."

 

Preview your new consent form.

 

Once you are satisfied with your new consent form, click Back.

 

You will now see your new consent form in My questionnaires.
