Popular booklet explains trials

What is informed consent? What happens during a washout period? How do investigators assess their results?

These are some of the questions answered in the new edition of Clinical Trials: What you need to know, published by the CIHR Canadian HIV Trials Network in partnership with the Canadian AIDS Society.

Clinical Trials Handbook

Written in plain language for people living with HIV, and their families and friends, the popular booklet provides a wealth of basic information about clinical trials in a simple question-and-answer format.

Chapters discuss the design of trials, how to decide whether to participate, stages of participation and other issues such as the responsibilities of volunteers, what happens if participants become ill, and the use of other drugs.
