Proposed Project: Evaluation of Office for Human Research Protections Outreach Pamphlet on Public Participation in Research—Office for Human Research.

Abstract: This evaluation project addresses the Office for Human Research Protection's need for the evaluation of an informational outreach pamphlet, “Becoming a Research Participant: It's Your Decision,” to educate the general public about factors to consider in their choice to participate or not participate in research. The evaluation is particularly important for the development and efficient distribution of future educational material. Participants in this survey will be members of the research community, broadly defined, including members of the human research protections community, who received the pamphlet for distribution by their organizations. The survey will collect a small amount of descriptive information regarding the research setting, how the institution utilized the pamphlet, the impact of the pamphlet's appearance and content, and to a brief degree, if and how the pamphlet had an effect on research participation.Start Printed Page 15434
