Questions for Your Doctor


When you're considering participating in a clinical trial, you need to know as much information about the study and its components as possible. We've included a few of the questions you might ask before becoming a research volunteer: 

  • What is the purpose of the study?
  • How long will the trial last?
  • What other options or choices do I have if I decide not to participate?
  • What tests and treatments does the study involve?
  • What are the short- and long-term side effects risks and benefits of this trial?
  • What are the possible side effects?
  • How do these compare to my current treatments?
  • What type of long-term follow up care is part of the study?
  • Who will pay for the treatment and all other expenses related to the study?
  • How can I end my participation in the study if I change my mind?
  • Whom do I contact for questions and information about the study?
