Abstract

This project incorporates legal, ethical, and social analyses in an attempt to synthesize a clear picture of current problems with comprehension of informed consent disclosures in order to determine possible avenues of procedural improvement. To that end, a series of semi-standardized interviews with professionals involved in informed consent proceedings were conducted. Responses were used in conjunction with prior research to develop a comprehensive perspective on current issues in biomedical disclosure comprehension.
