Research Disclosure Procedures for the Kamehameha Early Education Project. Technical Report #21.
Omori, Sharon; And Others
This report describes research disclosure procedures and materials developed for the Kamehameha Early Education Program (KEEP) to fulfill the informed consent principle of the ethical guidelines of the American Psychological Association. A requirement for registration of children in the program is that parents attend one of two disclosure meetings. Written announcements of the meetings are mailed to parents and followed up by telephone. At the meetings, parents and staff discuss topics generated by a "Parent Information Sheet" which emphasizes the research activities of the project. A 10-minute videotaped film of representative research activities is shown, and parents visit some of the research settings in the facility. Parents may also attend a Parent Observation Day to observe their children in the research settings. These procedures are followed individually for parents of children recruited subsequent to the group presentations. No parent has refused to enroll a child because of objections to research activities. The following forms are used: Parent Information Sheet, Request for Registration, Verification of Attendance at Parent Information Sheet, Consent to Participation in the Kamehameha Early Education Program.
