Experimental: Coversheet to Informed Consent
Coversheet attached to Informed Consent.
Other: Coversheet to Informed Consent
The intervention is a one page cover sheet to be affixed to the front of the standard permission form for the trial for which permission is being sought (attached to application). The form will identify the study as research and contain sections that include investigator contact information, the purpose of the study, a brief description of the study procedures, the alternatives, the voluntary nature, the risks, the potential benefits, a discussion of privacy and confidentiality, the costs and the payments. Each topic will also contain a reference to the page in the consent containing the full description of the topic. The form is designed to have a reading level no higher than 6th to 8th grade. Parents will also receive the full permission form, and all required signatures will still be collected on the permission form.
No Intervention: No Coversheet
Standard, full permission form, without the coversheet.
- DICCT Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Within 2 weeks after being approached for participation. ]
Score on the post-permission DICCT questionnaire. The DICCT is scored on a 28 point scale, with each of 14 parameters being scored as 0 = incorrect, 1 = partially correct, 2 = correct. The DICCT, in addition to being previously validated, has other advantages. It contains questions that are not directly addressed in the cover sheet, but addressed in the full permission form, such as compensation for injury. These items will serve as valuable internal controls. The DICCT is easily adaptable to written answers, which makes it ideal for further modification in future studies.
The DICCT will be administered during a structured interview, without a time limit. The parent will be allowed to refer to the permission form to answer the questions.
