Potential Benefits to the subject are those benefits that may be reasonable expected as a result of participation in the study. The most common form of a direct benefit to the subject as a result of participation in non-therapeutic research is knowledge of value to the subject (for example, results of cholesterol screening, results of a cardiac stress test, results of a physical fitness test, results of an educational test, etc.). The Potential Benefits to the Subject should not be overstated, coercive, or guaranteed. If the research will provide no benefits to the subject, it should be stated.
The Potential Benefits to the Subject section should not describe financial compensation or other forms of remuneration.
