Title

Redesigning Informed Consent Tools for Specific Research

Abstract

Consent tools for health research generally are designed without contextual or linguistic factors in mind. This is especially true of university-based research. This case history details our design team's efforts to transform one generic consent form into a set of multimodal tools that will increase patients' understanding of and participation in a medical study.
