Background: Participation in clinical trials is critical for the success of evidence-based healthcare. Much previous research suggests that people take part in clinical trials mostly for altruistic reasons, and that deriving personal benefit is a secondary consideration.
Purpose: To investigate patients' reasons for deciding whether to take part in clinical trials and the extent to which personal benefit may be a motivating factor.
