New Book Looks at Clinical Research from the Patient's Point of View
Date:12/19/2007

formed Consent: A Guide to the Risks and Benefits of Volunteering for Clinical Trials, with Deborah Borfitz in 2002, says the new book expands on his earlier effort.

"After the first book was published, I realized certain pieces were missing that I felt were critical," Getz explains. In an effort to fill the gaps, Getz's new book looks at why clinical research participation matters and explains the important role it plays in furthering medical knowledge. Real-life stories from clinical trial volunteers about their own experiences reveal the human side of clinical research. With a foreword written by Congressman Rick Boucher (D-VA) and a back cover endorsement from Armstrong, The Gift of Participation provides a detailed road map into a complex world many readers will be eager to explore.

Proceeds from the book's sale will be used to help fund CISCRP's efforts on behalf of public education about clinical research. As the public's thirst for new therapies and treatments expands, Getz expects the need for information will grow. That's where he hopes The Gift of Participation will have its greatest impact.

"Ideally, I would like to see the lay public and prospective participants get the book and use it as a guide to learn about and make choices about clinical research," he relates. "I'd be really happy to know that people are using it as one of many inputs in their decision-making about clinical research participation."

The Gift of Participation: A Guide to Making Informed Decisions about Volunteering for a Clinical Trial can be purchased through the CISCRP Online Bookstore or by phone. Copies also may be obtained at major online and retail booksellers. For more information or to purchase a copy, go to http://www.ciscrp.org/e-store/store.asp or phone at 1-888-CISCRP3.
