After you have read the information sheet and discussed the trial with the researchers, you should ask yourself these questions to make sure you understand what the trial is about and what you will need to do if you take part:

  • why the study is being done ?
  • why am I suitable or being asked to take part?
  • who is running the study and who is funding the study?
  • what are the treatments being tested and what is the chance of receiving each treatment?
  • Who pays for the treatments and tests done for the trial?
  • Why do the researchers think the treatment being tested might work and has it been tested before?
  • what are the risks and benefits of being in the trial compared to my current or alternative treatment/s?
  • who would I contact with any questions before or during the study?
  • who is looking after me during the trial and how do I contact them if I had any questions or problems during the study?
  • How long will I be in the trial?
  • how often and how regularly I would need to visit the researcher?
  • Will I need to be hospitalized?
  • how long do the visits to the researcher take?
  • What tests will I need to do when I visit the researcher (for example blood tests, or other tests that might make you uncomfortable)?
  • What do I need to do between visits to the researcher? (For example, take tablets at a particular time(s) of the day, take a certain number of tablets, give injections, make phone calls, fill in a diary or questionaires)
  • How might this trial affect my daily life, and am I happy with that?
  • how is my identity and data being protected?
  • how do I withdraw if I don‟t want to stay in the trial?
  • for what reasons might the trial get stopped or the investigator withdraw me from the trial?
  • Is there any follow-up care after the study?
  • Will I get the results and when?

These questions are also available as a separate document on the AccessCR website.
