Communication of benefit-risk information: an online randomised controlled trial (CICERO)

Researchers at the University of Oxford would like to recruit people between 18 and 65 years old to take part in the CICERO trial. This study is investigating how the communication of pros and cons of medical treatments and interventions can affect people's understanding of information, their confidence, and how they use this information when making decisions about their health.

The study consists of a single online session (questionnaires) lasting about 20 minutes. You will be shown information on fictional treatments using one out of three communication strategies. You will also be asked to go through a couple of fictional clinical scenarios.

If you are interested in taking part or would like to know more, please visit or contact Edoardo Ostinelli (
