We all know that Informed Consent must be performed by an Investigator but does this stop other staff members from participating the informed consent process?

No.  In fact, I encourage all study coordinators to be involved in the informed consent process.  Coordinators are usually more familiar with the logistics of the study – the number of study visits, how long they last, what assistance is available for transport etc.  It is also an opportunity to build trust and rapport with patients.  As long as coordinators are not giving medical advice or trying to unduly influence the patient’s decision, being involved from the very start is only a good thing.
