Abstract

Obtaining consent is not only an ethical obligation, but also a legal compulsion. Informed consent is more than simply getting a patient to sign a written consent form. But a major challenge posed was to assure subject's perception about the informed consent basic components, particularly among those with low educational attainment. This cross-sectional survey summarizes the perceptions of pregnant women with low educational attainment about informed consent while registering into randomized controlled trial in India.
