plain language statement

The Plain Language Statement and Consent Form (PLSC) is the standard way of establishing informed consent for someone to be involved in a research project. Usually written, it includes information on the nature of the research project, what participants are being asked to do, and the potential consequences of involvement in the project. The National Statement sets out standard requirements for PLSCs in chapter 2.2.
