Medical research involves people, like you. By participating in clinical research, you’re assisting doctors and researchers learn more about disease while improving health care for people in the future. Clinical trials address many different aspects of care including the improvement of the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses.

There are a variety of reasons to participate in a  clinical trial. Healthy volunteers may participate to help others by moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease may volunteer to receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.

As medical research expands the science and/or technology to diagnose, prevent, treat, or cure disease and disability, clinical trial participation is essential to help find those answers. Offering hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future, trial volunteers are essential.

Is Participating in a Clinical Trial Safe?

Yes. There are ethical guidelines in place to protect volunteers, like the Informed Consent information.

We thoroughly discuss the key facts related to a clinical trial with you before you decide to participate. This presentation and discussion is called Informed Consent.  We provide you with Informed Consent documents and information, detailing the purpose of the study, duration, required procedures, and who your contacts are. This document also explains risks and potential benefits. After this meeting, you will be presented the opportunity to accept and sign the Informed Consent to enroll in the trial, or not sign the document and reject participation.

It’s important to note that you are free to withdraw from the study at any time.

Why have Clinical Trials?

Clinical Research provides us with insights and answers about the safety and effectiveness of treatments and procedures.

Through the use of Clinical Research, many groundbreaking scientific advances – both present and the past – were made possible only because of participation of volunteers.
