What Questions Should I Ask Before Joining a Clinical Trial?

Joining a clinical trial is a significant decision, and there are several personal factors to keep in mind when deciding whether to join – not to mention including the opinions of family members and your doctor.

Like any decision, it helps to first consider your goals and priorities, asking yourself questions about what you hope to get out the trial, how much time you have to give, and any non-negotiables you have about the kind of trial you're interested in joining. For example, you may know that you're not interested in participating in a clinical trial that requires overnight visits.

In our next patient education webinar, we'll cover:

  • Personal factors to take into account when you're considering joining a clinical trial.
  • Important questions to ask research staff before joining, including how to get a clear sense of what the patient experience will be like, what the goals of the trial are, and how insurance and compensation will work for the trial.

Like in all of our patient education webinars, you'll also have the opportunity to ask your own questions about the decision-making process, or anything else related to the process of finding and joining a clinical trial.

The webinar will be hosted by Antidote staff, and we'll be joined by Ellyn Getz, Associate Director of Engagement and Community Development at the The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP). Register now to join our informative webinar.
