Abstract

Informed consent is an ongoing process, and oncology nurses are important advocates to identify information gaps and patient concerns during this process. This article discusses the rights of research participants from a regulatory perspective. Two case scenarios are presented and discussed to describe how nurses can ensure that patients are truly informed and understand the clinical trial process.
