  1. Characteristics of the medical laypersons. Early intervention group: the medical laypersons received simulated informed consent talks by medical students, who had a communication training first and a comparison intervention after. Late intervention group: the medical laypersons received simulated informed consent talks by medical students, who had a comparison intervention first and a communication training after. The p-values were calculated using the Chi Square test.
