What Is Informed Consent?

Informed consent is the process by which you agree to take part in a clinical trial after receiving information about the purpose of the study, the treatment that will be given, the tests that will be taken, and the risks and benefits of treatment.

  • You must sign a written consent form before being enrolled into a clinical trial. This form says that you understand the study and agree to take part.
