Every clinical research study is unique. Anyone interested in participating in a clinical study should know as much as possible about the study and feel comfortable asking the research team questions about the study, the related procedures, and any expenses.
Prior to meeting with the research coordinator or doctor, plan ahead and write down possible questions to ask. You may also wish to discuss this decision with your family, friends, or doctor. Feel free to bring a friend or relative with you for support and to hear the responses to your questions.
