Abstract:

Clinical Trials: What Patients and Volunteers Need to Know demystifies the process, focusing on the process of drug development, and the clinical trial itself. The author provides important questions to ask those running a clinical trial, key definitions and terms for a participant to know and understand, as well as anecdotes illustrating the clinical trial process. The author also grapples with the idea of "informed consent," providing mechanisms for patients and volunteers to feel fully informed before signing up for the trial.--From publisher description.
