Tips for completing the online preconsent review form

  • It also lets you click a button to calculate age and BMI after you enter birth date, height and weight, and automatically enters Judicial Circuit once you select county of residence.
  • Most menu choices include an option of “other” for you – if you don’t find the needed choice, select “other” and a box will open where you type in your other information.
  • The preconsent review form allows review of up to eight different medications; you will see a choice of “add another planned medication” button at the end of Section 3. If you click this button, you will be given an entry field for planned medications #2, #3 and up to #8, if needed.
