However, stem cell research is very technical and, as with much medical research, there is information asymmetry between laypeople and elucidators, particularly where those elucidators are researchers.
The competencies required for competent elucidators include not only an ability to explain the research and enhance PRPs' understanding, but also an ability to judge PRPs' voluntariness and eligibility to participate in the research.
In order to competently deal with such diverse issues, elucidators must be able to catch signs of anxiety and concern in PRPs during IC, as expressed verbally and non-verbally by the participants.
Elucidators also need an ability to establish and maintain partnerships with both PRPs and investigators to ensure long-term safety.
