Abstract :

Keywords Parent Public Involvement; Neonatal; Language; Qualitative Highlights * Parents accept uncertainty as an integral component of clinical care. * Language, format and structure of patient information sheets influence consent. * Three key aspects of language which influenced parents were words, tone, and pace. Abstract In this qualitative study exploring parent views of information about research studies, we found they accepted uncertainty as justification, and that three key aspects of language - words, tone, and pace - influence parents' decision about their baby's inclusion. We recommend parents are routinely involved in developing information materials.
