About the Brochure:

Deciding whether to join a clinical trial is a complicated matter that could affect a participant’s life. CISCRP is dedicated to helping people of all backgrounds and experiences navigate these decisions for themselves and their families. We created this brochure to guide potential participants through that decision-making process.

This brochure was developed with feedback from members of the public, as well as subject matter experts. They all helped make sure the topics, language, images, and design are appropriate and engaging.

This brochure was also reviewed by an Institutional Review Board (IRB), which is also known as an independent ethics committee. The IRB review ensures the brochure follows ethical guidelines for providing information about clinical research to patients and the public. The alternative text and accessibility features in this brochure were added after IRB review.

Topics include:

  • What does it mean to be in a clinical trial?
  • What is an informed decision?
  • Questions to ask yourself
  • Questions to ask a healthcare professional
  • Questions to ask family, friends, and others you trust
  • What should you do next?
