Comprehension in the informed-consent process

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Using a generic consent form is desirable in the informed-consent process, but such forms may not give potential subjects an adequate understanding of a project. Attention to several aspects of design and content of the form will assist comprehension. A form matched to the knowledge and reading ability of the typical subject should be supplemented with verbal information for those who do not or cannot read the form properly.
