This task can also be performed from the Study Consents grid of the patient detail window. See Viewing a Previously Uploaded Consent Form (Study Enrollment Window).

Consent forms that have been uploaded into the CCR database are stored in pdf file format. In order to view this file format you must have a pdf reader application, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, installed on your computer. This application is free and is easily accessible for download on the Internet. If you do not have a pdf reader on your computer, contact HCI Informatics for help in acquiring the proper software.

To view a previously uploaded consent form:

1. Make certain that if you have a pop-up blocker installed on your computer it is either turned off, configured to accept pop-ups from the HCI server or that you hold down the proper key(s) — usually the CTRL key — to allow the pop-up window to open while doing the following steps. The consent form will appear in a pop-up window, so a pop-up blocker will interfere with this functionality. (If you don't know if you have a pop-up blocker installed on your computer, don't worry about it unless you run into trouble.)

2. Open the Edit Study Enrollment Data, Consents and Consent Forms window for the patient's enrollment in the study. See Viewing/Editing a Patient's Enrollment in a Study for instructions on how to do this.

3. Double-click on the consent form that you want to view in the Consent Forms grid on the window. A separate browser window (outside of the CCR desktop environment) will open displaying the pdf file associated with the row in the Consent Forms grid that you selected.
