Before enrolling in a research study, it is a good idea to learn as much as possible about the study and your role as a participant. Ask questions, use resources, such as the Internet, to search for information, and seek advice from family, trusted doctors, clergymen or friends. Speak to the research study team about what will be done and what your rights are as a participant. If you need help understanding what you were told about the research study, ask the investigators and research study team to explain it to you.
Your participation in a research study is completely voluntary, and you may drop out at any time.
