¡About Research Participation: en Español!
OHRP is expanding the Spanish language materials available on its public outreach website, About Research Participation, From the main page, users can choose to view the site in English or Spanish. These resources are intended to help potential volunteers better understand research and find the information they need to decide whether to participate in research. The Spanish pages include short videos about participating in research and a printable list of questions that potential volunteers can ask researchers. There are also links to additional resources that are available in Spanish.
Trial coordinators and research staff may want to use these materials to facilitate and improve the informed consent process. We hope these materials will be a valuable resource for the research community as well as the general public. Please consider sharing this information with other human research protection professionals!
