Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

According to current statistics, more than 90 million people in the United States have a hard time understanding and using health information. This is as many people as there are in France, Belgium and the Netherlands. To respond to this growing needed, President Obama signed the Plain Writing Act of 2010 and two other executive orders to cover the use of plain language. Use of Plain Language gets researchers closer to the historically used 6th to 8th grade level as the target for written consent documents. There are other tips as well that can improve the readability and acceptably of a consent document.
