for Veterans and the Public
How can I find out about participating in a clinical trial?
Many trials are being conducted at VA medical centers across the country. There are trials in all Phases, studying many different drugs. Ask your VA doctor about what trials may be appropriate for you.
The decision to participate in a clinical trial is an important personal choice. It is a good idea to know as much as possible about the trial before beginning. You may want to have a list of questions for the health care providers and study coordinators when you meet with them. You may also want to talk with your regular doctor, friends, and family to help you make your decision.
