    • additional demands of the trial
    • patient preferences
    • worry caused by uncertainty
    • concerns about information and consent.
There is no evidence on the impact of Digital Video Decoders (DVDs) or videos on knowledge or confidence of staff in obtaining consent, and on uptake of consent by parents.
  • We explored the effectiveness of a DVD/ video and accompanying booklet in 24 INIS sites in
    • describing consent delivery methods
    • improving knowledge about the INIS trial.
