Shortened Consent Validation Study
||Development of a New Tool to Evaluate Readability, Understandability and Actionability of Key Information in Informed Consent Forms
||Andreas Klein, MD and Sabrina Kurtz-Rossi, MEd
The purpose of the study is to evaluate a tool developed to evaluate whether information in an informed consent form is presented in plain language so that potential study participants can make informed decisions about whether to participate a clinical research study or not. Ultimately study teams will be able to use the tool to help guide them in creating easy to read and understandable research informed consent forms.
