Advertising for Participants

Printer-friendly version

If advertising for participants, investigators must follow these guidelines: a) Information must not be misleading to subjects, especially when a study will involve vulnerable populations; b) Include the name and address of the investigator, the purpose of the research and eligibility criteria for participation as subjects, a clear description of any benefits and/or risks of participating, the affiliation of the researcher, the location of the research, and whom to contact for further information; c) If a drug or device is to be used in the research, no claim should be made as to its superiority, safety or effectiveness. A copy of the advertisement must be included with the protocol.
