About the Project:

Building on lessons learned from our PCORI-funded pilot study (Stakeholder Views of Streamlined Informed Consent Options for CER), this study will measure patients’ views of the acceptability of streamlined disclosure/consent procedures for a low risk randomized CER study under different conditions relating to patient respect, information about the need for more evidence about medical treatments, and the explicit use of the word “choice” when discussing disclosure/consent with patients.
