APCP Wales conducted a survey, the relevant objective of this survey was to “develop standardised therapy information leaflets to assist in the informed consent process” Aims to review available guidance literature on the production of information leaflets; create a template from the guidance literature; Assess how successful the chosen leaflets are by emulating the reader’s experience; create a guidance tool for paediatric physiotherapists Method: 3 stages of documentary analysis were employed to assess the leaflets 1. Interpretation 2. Readability Formulae calculations 3. Functional thematic analysis Conclusion: The majority of leaflets adhered to the themes relating to legibility, but readability and the identity of the NHS was less well observed. • All leaflets were written using an excessively high level of language. • Children were never addressed directly by the leaflets. • Complex and diverse guidance sources maybe contributing to unsuccessful leaflet production.
