Opportunity to Update Your Biobank Consent

We are offering participants who joined the Biobank before October 2019 the opportunity to update their study consent. Why? The updated consent form has new information about:

  • The purpose of the Biobank research study
  • Your rights as a participant
  • The types of people, institutions and companies we may partner with and share data
  • The possibility of some results returned from the Biobank if they become available

How do I know if I am eligible to update my consent form?
Check on your My Health Connection (MHC) portal. Click on ‘Tools’ at top, then click on ‘Consents and Forms’. Here you should see your Biobank consent and the date you signed. If you signed a consent before October 2019, you are eligible to update your consent.

How do I update my consent?
If you are eligible to update your consent form, the new consent will be available on your MHC portal. Click on ‘Tools’ at top, then click on ‘Research Opportunities’. From here, you can view the consent form and choose to Accept, Decline or Skip for later.

You do not have to update your consent form to continue to participate in the Biobank. If you choose to Decline the consent, you are still be enrolled in the Biobank.
