Common Terms to Understand When Considering a Clinical Trial

Informed Consent

Next » « Previous


Informed consent is the process of learning the key facts about a clinical trial before you decide whether or not to participate.
The research staff will provide you with informed consent documents that include the details about a study.  If English is not your first language, you can ask for the consent in another language. 

Since joining a clinical trial is an important decision, it is important to ask the research team any questions you may have about the study or the consent forms, before making a decision. 

You should understand that informed consent is more than simply signing a form.  It is a process that continues through the study. You should feel free to ask the research team questions before, during, and after the study.
