Our hypothesis is that the use of the GenI tool will help to detect research ideas in paramedical health care that could lead to research projects.

A Survey of Patient's Attitudes Towards Consent For Clinical Research In Anesthesiology

In most current academic anesthesia groups, it appears that consent for research is acquired on the day of surgery. This practice raises concerns because the hospital may be regarded as a coercive environment and there may be the possibility that the immediate preoperative environment prohibits adequate time for understanding the research project and making an informed decision about participation. However, this is often the only opportunity for anesthesiologists to obtain res...
