Clinical trials and older people—how you can get involved

e-Update from the National Institute on Aging
Clinical trials test possible interventions, like new drugs, diets, or medical devices, which can lead to new ways of treating health problems. These discoveries aren’t possible without volunteers like you!
It’s important for older people to participate in clinical trials so that scientists can learn more about how new therapies or tests work for older adults.
Here are some things to consider before volunteering for a trial:
  • Talk to your doctor about trials that might work for you or visit
  • Ask the study team questions before you participate like “What is this study trying to find out?” or “What are the possible risks, side effects, and benefits to the study treatment compared to my current treatment?”
  • Learn how your safety and privacy will be protected.
