Hi everyone,

I represent a group of multi-school student researchers attempting to learn how patients make decisions about joining clinical trials. Our goal is to find and propose new ways to help future patients make better decisions about joining clinical trials.

If you or anyone you know has had to make choices about a breast cancer study, please take a minute to participate in this short anonymous survey, or pass the link along. Your participation will greatly help our research. Please accept our deepest thanks.

Peter has allowed these studies through surveymonkey and we will continue to allow it pending Peters decision. I have alerted the post in Prostate Cancer and will monitor this until Peter decides.

Thanks Tony. I will gladly re-edit the post. I appreciate your help... I'm new at this!

I can tell you right now I'm joining three clinical trials and the reason I am is because none of them involve drugs. If they did I would have said no.

Can't take the survey because I haven't started the trials yet.
