What questions can I ask?

It’s important to ask any question you have before you agree to participate in a study. Find out about practical matters like how long it will take, where it will take place, and what you’ll be expected to do. You may also want to know about the study’s goal, who is funding the study, and how the findings could help others or advance the field. Whatever your questions, feel free to ask them at any time – it’s your right to have this information.
