    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?

    Additional resources are available to assist you in making this decision.
