The MAIN Project – Research Staff feedback needed

Do you have ideas on how we can improve the way we provide information to people during the informed consent procedure? We would value hearing from you.

The Meeting Access and Inclusion Needs, or the MAIN project, is a program looking at ways to enhance how information about clinical research can be provided to prospective participants as part of an informed consent procedure.

Based on the feedback we receive, we hope to develop a set of applications, resources and templates that may assist research staff and clinical research organisations to provide information that is easy to read, access and understand.

Why we need your views

  • We would like to collect the views of research staff working across clinical research settings in Australia to better understand what factors impact an effective informed consent procedure.
  • We would like input into developing a set of adaptable resources and templates for providing accessible information for research participation.

Your time commitment

We are inviting you to complete a survey that can take between 10 to 15 minutes to complete depending upon how much feedback you provide. The survey will ask you some general background questions followed by questions about your experience conducting or facilitating informed consent procedures.
