Clinical Trials: What You Need To Know

Clinical Trials - readable


Published by the Canadian AIDS Society in 2012 (fourth edition), this booklet aims to give people living with HIV, their families, friends and others some basic information about clinical trials. Its purpose is not to endorse any particular trial or to try and persuade people to participate. Rather, it aims to shed some light on clinical trials: how and why they are conducted, how people can join a trial, and what they can expect if they decide to participate.
