Is It Right for You?

The reasons for taking part in a clinical trial are very personal. You are encouraged to ask and learn about clinical trials during your visits to the Juravinski Cancer Centre.

  • Only you can decide to take part. Your oncologist and nurse are there to help answer your questions. Make a list of your questions to discuss at your next appointment.
  • Take your time to weigh the pros and cons. Think about what could potentially help you and what you are not comfortable with.
  • Discuss all options with those close to you, such as family, friends, pastor, aboriginal navigator or your other doctors.
  • You will never be forced to join a clinical trial. Taking part is always voluntary and you may chose to stop a clinical trial at any point in time for any reason.
  • If you change your mind and stop taking part in a clinical trial, you can discuss other treatment options with your oncologist and nurse. Stopping does not impact on the quality of your care. We understand and respect your decisions.
