Keep reading to learn more about how to become a participant in a clinical trial, what is expected of participants, and how to sign up today to become pre-qualified.
What is a Clinical Trial?
A clinical trial is a research study in which one or more human subjects are prospectively assigned to one or more interventions (which may include placebo or other control) to evaluate the effects of those interventions on health-related biomedical or behavioral outcomes.
There is no medical insurance needed to become a participant in a clinical trial because the pharmaceutical company funds the entire process. Clinical research studies are a great opportunity to try new medications and treatments for your condition without having to worry about how to get your insurance to cover it or how to pay for it. They are also a great way to try the newest, cutting-edge treatments for your condition if nothing else has worked for you or if you simply want to try something new.
What is Expected of Participants?
Participants are the most important part of clinical research studies. Many studies compensate participants for their time and travel since there will be a number of appointments to monitor their safety and the effectiveness of the treatment. Appointments will include initial screening appointments as well as study appointments to receive the investigational medication or laboratory appointments.
There may also be follow-up appointments after the study ends to continue monitoring the treatment’s effects. The number of appointments varies from study to study, and you will be made aware of everything during the informed consent process. You can withdraw from the study at any time, and all of your information is kept absolutely confidential.
Where Can I Sign Up?
Signing up to become a participant is easy! All you have to do is click here to fill out a short form with your contact information. A member of our staff will reach out to you to conduct the pre-screening call. At this time, you can also ask any questions you may have and the entire process will be explained to you.
You may then be asked to begin the informed consent process, and once this form is signed, you will be asked to come to our office for the rest of the screening process, which usually involves a free medical exam, to determine your eligibility. If you are eligible for the study, you will be asked to join!
