Most Michigan parents, grandparents prefer research hospitals for pediatric care
Date:5/13/2013

ANN ARBOR, Mich. Four out of five parents and grandparents in Michigan say they'd rather take children to a hospital that does medical research for children than one that does not, according to a new poll from the University of Michigan.

A new study from the Michigan Child Health Research Priorities team at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital found that more than 80 percent of parents and grandparents prefer a hospital that does medical research about children -- if they can expect the same level of care, the hospital is equally accessible and with no difference in cost.

The study also found that one out of four parents and grandparents in Michigan would be interested in their children or grandchildren taking part in medical research, although only 2 percent say their children or grandchildren have done so before.

"This project is the first of its kind to ask parents and grandparents about medical research for children, how they want to be involved, and what that means for where they would take their children for medical care," says Matthew M. Davis, M.D., M.A.P.P., the director of the Michigan Child Health Research Priorities or M-CHRP team. "We found that the public recognizes the importance of pediatric research and the benefits of healthcare providers who are engaged in that research. They want their children to be cared for by people who are actively involved in developing new ways to prevent and treat illnesses for children.

"Based on this study, we think there is great potential for participation in child health research in Michigan," says Davis.

M-CHRP is a statewide research effort designed to inform and stimulate public engagement in Michigan around child health research. This poll's representative sample of 758 adults was made up of Michigan residents who were parents or grandparents of children aged 0 to 17.

In the poll, respondents were given the opportunity to also indicate what types of diseases
