Informed consent in research requires investigators to explain to potential participants the procedures, risks, benefits, and alternatives of a study through either oral or written consent. This article discusses cases when oral consent may be more appropriate to use than written consent. A proposal is presented for writing Institutional Review Board (IRB) protocols that incorporate both types of consent to protect the interests of participants and investigators.
