Motivators for Alzheimer's Disease Clinical Trial Participation

Individuals engaged in Alzheimer’s disease prevention and treatment clinical trials were surveyed about their motivation to participate in research. Important motivators were the potential to help themselves or a loved one and the potential to help others in the future. Relatively few respondents were motivated by free health care, monetary rewards, or the potential to make others happy.
