Model Informed Consents

Information in the consent document must be organized to facilitate comprehension. Consent documents should be written in plain language, generally at the 8th grade reading level. The reading level can be higher if the target population tends to have a higher literacy rate than the general population. For child assent documents, the reading level and complexity of the information provided should be appropriate for the age of the child. For more information on plain language go to
