What is Clinical Research?
Clinical Research is the study of health and illness, and it helps to provide prevention, diagnosis, and treat illnesses. Clinical Research is the process of scientific investigation that brings new treatment options to patient care. The process requires volunteers to help determine the effectiveness of medications, devices, treatment regimens, and diagnostic discovery.
Why particpiate in Clinical Research?
Clinical research aims to determine if a treatment works and does so safely. Healthy people participate in studies to help others that suffer from disease or illness. Those who suffer from a disorder or illness directly may volunteer to help others who suffer the same condition and receive the newest treatment option where others may have failed. Volunteering in clinical research is a way of giving back to helping others.
