Backgrounder; the correct questions to ask 

I advise that you also


  • Ask about the nature of the medications to be used on you; what they're made of and what else they're used for. 


  • Insist of having a written explanation for every creme, injection, pill, powder, process and other type of treatment to be used on you. 
  • Clarify the start date, end date, exam dates and all expectations of the clinical trial that interests you.


  • The medical world promotes ethics by insisting on patient rights and informed consent. 


  • Be pro-active about protecting your interests. Insist on receiving thorough information before you agree to anything. Know what you're getting into.
