Parental Permission and Adolescent Assent and Decision Making in Clinical Research
This study aims to better understand how adolescents enrolled in clinical research and their
parents understood the study information presented, made decisions about enrolling,
experienced the process of assent and consent, and perceive the experience of participating
in research. Interviews will be conducted with adolescents participating in clinical
research and with one of their parents. Adolescents with a number of disorders, including
cancer, chronic diseases, bipolar disorder, obesity, and HIV, as well as healthy controls
who are enrolled in NIH intramural protocols, will be interviewed.
