Multiple births (twins, triplets, quadruplets, etc.) have seen an increase in the past several decades and babies that are multiples make up a large number of participants in clinical research trials involving infants. Little is known, however, about how multiples and their families would prefer to be included in neonatal trials. This research study wants to find out multiples’ thoughts on being entered into clinical research trials by asking you several questions through the following survey. You are being asked to participate because you are a multiple. You can take the survey whether or not you have been in a clinical trial.


There is a small risk of loss of confidentiality, which will be protected against by not collecting identifying information such as your name, address, exact age, and other things that can identify you.


Although there is no direct benefit to participating, you will be contributing to an important and unanswered question in neonatal and perinatal research. You will also help us to design future trials in a way that is most friendly to multiples and their families.
