We live in a world where there are consequences for every action you make, and there are laws mandated to protect each of our interests. We can’t simply do whatever we wish to do. That being said, it is important that an organization has the proper consent from a participant client before they perform any procedure, or start a project or research study, among other things.
There are various situations that require the use of Consent Forms. Along with that, there are also a lot of available formats, depending on what kind of Consent Form you need. Browse through our selections below to find the ones that you need or check out our other Consent Forms for more samples.

Target Audience of Consent Forms
There is a wide variety of users of Consent Forms available because there are a lot of organizations and industries that perform procedures and activities that would require a Consent Form from the participant or client beforehand. You may see our Consent Form in PDF. These are easy to download and print.
Educational institutions use Consent Forms. Students are required by their curriculum to conduct research studies to further their learning, and there are certain kinds of research studies that would require the participation of other people for the collection of data. For these research studies, a Consent Form has to be signed by each participant before they start.
Business organizations also use Consent Forms in some of their transactions. One example is the use of Tattoo Consent Forms before a tattoo artist can give someone a tattoo. Aside from this, there are other instances when a business organization would need a Consent Form signed, such as when asking their customers to sign a questionnaire form.
Any organization would also need a Consent Form signed by the parents or legal guardians of a minor or underage child before any procedure or activity, such as sports activities and traveling.

Importance of Consent Forms
Consent Forms are there to protect a company or organization from any future legal or financial liability that might entail a procedure or activity. For example, Photography Consent Forms are used to protect a company from any legal liability in the case of a third party who will download a photo and use it for unauthorized purposes. This is applicable when a photo will be uploaded or put up in the company’s website.
Aside from protecting a company from legal or financial liabilities, it also protects the participant or client who signs it. One example is the use of Vaccine Consent Forms before a vaccine is administered to a patient. In this case, it is clearly stipulated on the Consent Form that the physician or healthcare practitioner administering the vaccine has explained all the possible risks and benefits of the vaccine to the patient. This way, it can be ensured that the patient is well-informed before he signs the Consent Form to get a vaccination.
This principle can also be applied on research studies, wherein the participants have to be informed of the purpose of the study, the contributions of the study to the community, and the extent of participation required from the participants, before they sign the Consent Form. Having your participants and clients sign a Consent Form is more than just a legal requirement; it is your moral responsibility as well to make sure that your participants are not participating blindly.
A participant’s cooperation and participation is voluntary, but there are responsibilities and duties that are shared by both the company or organization, and the participant or client, that are stipulated on a Consent Form. That way, you can be sure that you are in agreement before the activity or procedure is performed, and that there will lesser disputes or complaints in the future.

Benefits of Using Pre-made Consent Forms
Making your own Consent Forms from scratch can be very time-consuming and hard for anyone, and running a business or organization already requires a lot of hard work as it is. Using pre-made Consent Forms allows you to save time and energy that you could use to focus on other areas of your organization. You may see our Basic Consent Forms for simpler samples.
Because pre-made Consent Forms are divided into subsections, you can ensure that all information needed is included in the form and that nothing is left out. This way, the form can be more efficient in serving its purpose. Also, because these forms are properly labeled, these allow you to organize them properly and accordingly, depending on their purpose and the department that issues them. This way, when you need them in the future, you can access and find them easily.
Lastly, since our samples on this article are in Word format, you can easily download the forms you need and edit them according to the needs and specifications of your organization and your field of business. You may also check out our Business Consent Forms for obtaining consent for various business transactions.

Research Consent Forms
Research Consent Forms are used by students or any organization that wants to conduct a research study that requires the participation of human subjects. This allows the researchers to explain to the participants what the purpose and contribution of the research study is to the community. Aside from that, the researchers would also be required to inform the participants of the length of the study and to what extent their participation will be. This is so that they are fully aware and well-informed before they make the decision of participating and signing the Consent Forms. Questionnaire Consent Forms may also be used for research if the study involves asking a list of questions from a sample group of participants.
Video and Photo Consent Forms
Photos and videos of various subjects are used by companies and organizations for various purposes, such as marketing. They can also put up videos and pictures on their websites. But before they can do so, they would need to have the subject/s of the photo or video sign a Photo or Video Consent Form so that they can have the rights to use the photo or video in any way they deem necessary and post it on various platforms. Common users of these forms are educational institutions, film producers, videographers, and photographers.
Doctor Consent Forms
This is a Consent Form that is filled out by a doctor or physician. In this Consent Form, the doctor or physician will indicate or give consent that the patient is fit for an activity or procedure, after the patient has been examined. This attests that the person is fit for the activity so that the organization conducting the activity will not be held liable for any complications relating to an underlying medical condition. You may also see our Medical Consent Forms for other examples and more information.
Child Travel Consent Forms
Due to the increasing incidents of child trafficking and kidnapping, a minor or child under the age of 18 is not allowed to travel without a Child Travel Consent Form signed by the parents or legal guardians. Despite its strict implementation, a Child Travel Consent Form is only necessary when the child will be traveling alone, with only one parent, or with another adult, like a relative. In addition to providing consent to travel, a stipulation regarding medical emergencies can also be included. This is so that the child can get medical attention in the case of an emergency.

Surgical Consent Forms
This is required before a minor or major medical surgery, or before administering anesthesia to a patient prior to a surgery. In a Surgical Consent Form, it is stated that the patient has been informed of the possible risks and complications that would arise from the surgery, alternative methods for treatment, and the necessity of the surgery and how it will treat the patient’s medical condition. All of these pieces of information ensure that the patient is making an informed decision to undergo surgery.
Aside from the provided consent, other information may also be included, such as the patient’s allergies to medication, if any, and the amount of time before the stitches from the surgery can be removed. In relation to this, the surgeon also has the responsibility to educate the patient of post-surgical care of the operated area to eliminate the risk of wound infection and cosmetic damage. You may also see our Child Medical Consent Forms.
School Trip Consent Forms
These are signed by the parents or legal guardians of a student who is under 18 years of age before a school trip. Such school trips can be field trips, camping trips, or excursions. You may also see our Student Consent Forms for other types of Consent Forms used in the educational setting.
