Mainous and colleagues report the development and validation of the 12-item Trust in Medical Resesearchers Scale. This scale is designed to be self-administered. Several scale items assess concerns about research participation that may be unique to populations with documented mistrust in medicine. It could be used to assess barriers to participation in research and inform recruitment strategies. Item descriptions are available in Table 1 of the linked publication.
