Understanding attitudes toward clinical research. The Journal of ambulatory care management Schulman, K. A. 2003; 26 (1): 88-90

Recent studies, including the study by Apolone and Mosconi in this issue, suggest that certain attitudes toward research and evaluations of the risks and benefits of therapies may differ according to various cultural, rhetorical, and health contexts. Researchers must work to further understand societal attitudes toward research and to improve the attractiveness of clinical research for the general population.
