Rights and Permissions

The voluntary consent of a subject participating in research is fundamental to the principle of autonomy. This consent must be free from any coercion, intimidation, falsehood, physical, psychological, or economic pressure. It is in the interest of the subject, the investigator and the sponsor to ensure that informed consent processes conform to the guidelines and regulations, both in the letter and spirit. However, ignorance on the part of investigating team causes deviation from these norms. Videography of the entire process has been suggested as a means to ensure the compliance, and draft rules for the same published. The present article examines how best videography can be introduced in the informed consent procedure without violating other protective mechanisms.
