研究當治療 ,Therapeutic misconception

Although subjects almost always provide informed consent for their participation in an RCT, studies since 1982 have documented that many RCT subjects believe that they are certain to receive treatment that is best for them personally; that is, they do not understand the difference between research and treatment.[76][77] Further research is necessary to determine the prevalence of and ways to address this "therapeutic misconception".[77]
