Assent is an agreement by an individual who is unable to give legally valid informed consent to participate in research.

 Advance Planning, Surrogate Decision Making, and Assent or Objection   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
For those whose decisionmaking capacity is impaired, truly informed consent may not be achievable but it remains the standard against which all efforts to obtain the ethical participation of individuals in research must be judged.
These mechanisms are: (1) the use of assent or the lack of objection; (2) the use of advance planning and surrogate decision making; and (3) the use of legally authorized representatives (LARs).
Recent commentary generally supports a requirement for subject assent or, at a minimum, lack of objection, except in the unusual case when research participation offers the subject the possibility of direct medical benefits not otherwise obtainable in the clinical setting.
