Qualité de l'information écrite aux personnes se prêtant à une recherche biomédicale en France. Etudes QuIPs

Abstract : The Informed Consent Form (ICF) is very important in biomedical research, so its quality is crucial. However, many publications emphasize its low readability and the difficulties to understand it. We studied the French documents. In a first step, we showed that the lexicosyntactic readability of the informed consent forms was lower than a university level. We then described that ethic committees did not improve lexicosyntactic readability and that they increased the length and complexity of the document. We after compared the readability and the density of ICF and pieces of popular science. The ICF have a low readability level and a low density. Thanks to our questionnaire validated, the QCFic, we showed that improving the lexicosyntactic readability or asking a working group to correct the ICF allows a better understanding in healthy volunteers . However, in patients, we tested the two techniques but no one
Has an effect on comprehension. It therefore seems necessary to conduct a study in a real situation, in factorial plan, to evaluate on the one hand the lexicosyntactic modification of ICF, on the other hand, the intervention of a third person in the process of Information.
