Digital technologies are increasingly being sought to manage the research consent process. CTRL is a secure web-based application that gives research participants the opportunity to engage more with a research program, update their personal details and choices about being involved in research, and take the lead in decision-making about secondary use of their genomic and health information.
CTRL also benefits research organisations. Electronic consent records replace paper and are more easily retrieved, it is interoperable with study databases like REDCap and manages permissions for secondary use of data using internationally endorsed standards.
Access a demonstration version of CTRL using the generic Study ID on the registration page: A1234123
