Abstract: The article focuses on the study which aims to develop an informed consent process of Tibetan traditional medicine through a randomized placebo-controlled trial in Lhasa, China. The study reveals a process that enables the U.S. and Tibetan research team in meeting their ethical and logistical challenges, and examines the differences between the outcomes. Moreover, a step-by-step process on how participants would react to the research and informed consent process were presented.
