    Findings on Clinical Trial Awareness and Knowledge

    At the outset, we wanted to understand how much people knew about clinical trials and how much of what they knew represented an accurate interpretation. We first asked respondents to describe their self-assessed level of knowledge. Next, we asked them to assess a set of related statements as being true or false.

     

    1. Nearly half of the respondents described themselves as at least “somewhat knowledgeable” about clinical trials.

    2. Two of five people who are at least somewhat familiar with clinical trials have investigated participating.

    In our true/false question series designed to assess understanding accuracy, 75% correctly answered each of the five statements. Only 40% accurately assessed all statements.

    Findings on Clinical Trial Participation

    Of those respondents who had some familiarity with clinical trials, nearly a quarter had personally participated.
