These are some questions that should be answered before a volunteer decides whether to participate in a clinical trial:

  • Why is the study being done?
  • What are the medicines involved?
  • Who will be in charge of my care during the trial?
  • Will my regular doctor or nurse also take care of me?
  • What will be expected of me?
  • What are the risks?
  • How might I benefit from this study?
  • If I don’t join the study, what other choices do I have for receiving my treatment?
  • Who will know about my participation?
  • Who will see my research records?
  • When the study ends, will I still get the medicine if it’s helping me?
  • What will happen if I change my mind after joining the study?
