Consent Information

Normally, before someone joins a research study, it is discussed with him or her in detail. Also, a consent form that lists the purposes of the study, the possible benefits, and the risks from being in the study is reviewed with the person. If the person agrees to join the study, the consent form is signed. In most cases, this takes place before any study procedures are done or treatment is given. This process is called "informed consent" and ensures that the person volunteered for the research study only after being given the information necessary to make an informed decision.

For this study, investigators will not be able to get written informed consent from each study participant, due to them being unconscious while in cardiac arrest. Instead, the investigators will try to inform the community about the study and address any concerns or questions before the study is approved to begin. We will do this by:

  • This website
  • Community meetings
  • Online and mailed surveys
  • Newspapers and Newsletters

People will be given the choice to refuse being in the study by contacting the investigators at OHSU and asking to opt-out.
