The Gift of Participation: A Guide to Making Informed Decisions About Volunteering for a Clinical Trial (Paperback)
To the millions of people who give the gift of participation in clinical trials each year; and to the rest of us who admire them for doing so.
The Gift of Participation takes a fresh look at why participation in clinical research really matters. This book addresses what clinical participation means and how it helps to advance medical science. Practical information on subjects like insurance coverage, compensation, and tax ramifications for clinical research volunteers also is included. With a foreword written by Congressman Rick Boucher of Virginia, and a back cover endorsement from Tour de France winner and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong, The Gift of Participation offers a road map into a world many readers are just beginning to explore.
The author, Ken Getz, sits down with NECN and reviews why clinical research trials are important, what questions to ask and provides a general overview about clinical research trials. Please click here to view this segment.
