Sam has not participated in a clinical trial, but he is open to doing so if the right opportunity presents itself. He has had conversations with all his providers about clinical trials and understands that they can be a valuable tool in the treatment process. However, Sam is not open to lengthy travel or going out of his way to participate in a clinical trial.
You may share the same feeling as Sam about clinical trials—you’re open to participating in one, but only if it’s nearby. Or maybe you’d like to actively pursue clinical trials as a method of treatment. If so, look at our Clinical Trials Fact Sheet for more information on how to participate in or join a clinical trial.
