A clinical trial is a carefully designed study that involves people like you who volunteer to receive investigational treatments under close supervision by a physician and other research professionals. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies have developed these treatments. A detailed description of your specific clinical trial and what is expected of you will be outlined in your consent form. 

 

 

Physicians and healthcare professionals who conduct clinical trials are committed to providing you with quality patient care of medical attention. You should feel free to discuss your medical treatment with your investigator or a research staff member at any time during the course of your clinical trial. Volunteers appreciate the medical attention that they receive when they participate. As a volunteer, you have the right to leave your study at any time and for any reason. Without volunteers, there would be no new drugs to fight diseases and ailments.

Question about your participation//

Q: What are the benefits of participating in a medical study?

People volunteer to participate in a medical research study for a number of reasons, including being a part of the advancement of science or hope for a treatment that doesn’t currently exist. They also may seek improved medical care or desire to be involved in research that could help many others.As a volunteer in a medical research study, a patient helps in the possible development of medical therapies that may offer better treatments and even cures for life-threatening and chronic diseases

Q: What can a volunteer expect?

Volunteers can expect to receive comprehensive information on their disease and available treatments as well as support for coping with their symptoms. They will be given a detailed outline of the study procedures, which may include physical exams, questionnaires, and blood work among other tests specific to the trial. The volunteer will receive study medication or placebo according to the trial. The patient must feel free to discuss their medical treatment with the investigator or any research staff member at any time during the course of the research study. The expectations of the volunteer will be clearly described and may include taking study medications as instructed, keeping all scheduled visits, and telling the study physician about any symptoms they have had, no matter how minor they may seem. As a volunteer, the patient has the right to leave the study at any time.

 

Q: Do the volunteers receive a copy of the study results?

​Once the study has been completed, the sponsor compiles the data from each individual and publishes the results. The reports are not normally sent to the volunteers, however, if they are interested in learning the results of the trial, they can be obtained from the site once they have been received.



Q: What is an informed consent form?

An informed consent form is basically a detailed and comprehensive information package. It contains information on the study medication, the required test procedures, expectations of the volunteer, possible risks and benefits as well as a visit schedule. Before beginning a trial, the study nurse will go through the informed consent form with the volunteer. The volunteer will be encouraged to take this form home to review and discuss with family, friends and/or their family physician. The informed consent form also addresses confidentiality. Information about your personal health is very private and researchers are extremely sensitive to volunteers’ need for confidentiality. With the volunteer’s permission, the personal information will not be disclosed to anyone outside of the medical research study group without consent. By signing an informed consent form, a volunteer is giving permission to the study staff to administer study medication and conduct the necessary study test procedures, however, this permission can be withdrawn at anytime for any reason.
