Tools for improving informed consent

This project is developing a computerised interactive program which will give information about colonoscopy, assess patient understanding, provide information in different formats where misunderstanding is present, and provide a record of understanding when consent is achieved. In initial steps, colonoscopy conversations are being audiotaped and analysed for content, qualitative research will explore the minimum information required for informed consent, and the ideal content of a consent program will be determined.
