Other info to think about when joining a study

If you are thinking about joining a study, you may see a “schedule of assessments” in the consent form. Someone from the study team may also provide more details. The study team will want to know if you can make it to all the study visits and if you understand all the activities you have to do while in the study.

If the schedule seems confusing, it can be helpful to ask the study team to help answer any questions. Additionally, putting all the activities that you need to do to participate in a study (like study visits or surveys) onto your personal calendar can help you plan.
