Your Rights as a Participant in Clinical Research

Once you decide to participate in a clinical trial, you will need to sign an Informed Consent form. This form provides a detailed explanation of the purpose of the trial and the types of treatment to be studied. It also discusses the probability of your receiving a given treatment, the known risks and benefits of each treatment, and any costs related to the study that you would be expected to pay. The consent form also lets you know whom to contact more information, and fully explains your rights in a clinical trial, including:

  • the right to confidentiality
  • the right to medical treatment for any trial-related injury
  • the right to withdraw from the study without penalty or loss of other medical care
