Determinants of Decision Making for Circumcision

Our experience indicates that some healthcare providers have personal biases about circumcision. We question whether these personal convictions influence the information disseminated to parents during the process of informed consent. This study was designed to investigate the time and nature of the information provided, and the process used to present that information to parents. In addition, we wanted to know what information mothers seek to make their decision regarding circumcision, the sources of information, and how accurate that information is. The goal of our evaluation was to identify effective mechanisms of providing information that minimize provider bias.
