Wit is a first-hand look of a participant’s experience in a cancer clinical trial. This movie is not for the faint of heart – if you are the least bit squeamish about vomit, you should skip this one. But it is almost required “watching” if you manage or coordinate clinical trials.
The story is about a literature professor diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. It chronicles her experience from a first-person perspective and her interactions with the study staff and caregivers.
The film is a poignant reminder of the extraordinary choice that patients make to become subjects in a clinical study, and the responsibility research administrators have to protect subject data and maintain current knowledge of clinical trials management.
