Ethics in clinical research: need for assessing comprehension of informed consent form?

Ethics in clinical research: need for assessing comprehension of informed consent form?

Contemporary Clinical Trials 32(2): 169-172

Comprehension of informed consent form has not achieved the attention it deserves. We made a 24-item questionnaire to assess clinical research participants' comprehension of informed consent form (Contemp Clin Trials 2009;30:427-30). Due to repeated requests by clinical researchers in our country and abroad, we are publishing the questionnaire in this article.
