You may be asking “Why should I participate in clinical research?”
1. Possibility to Access New treatments
People who volunteer for clinical research studies may gain access to promising drugs long before these compounds are approved for the marketplace. Your care will be overseen by our qualified physicians and staff during the course of the study.
2. No Cost Evaluations and Study Related Medical Care
Every volunteer who comes to Artemis Institute for Clinical Research will be evaluated by a licensed clinician. We will be able to provide you with an initial assessment and recommend treatment strategies. Additionally all study participants may have labs and other medical evaluations conducted during the study, the results of which will be provided to you. All of this will be provided at no cost to the study participant.
3. No Cost Aftercare
Every participant in a research study will be entitled to 2 months of aftercare, which includes meeting with the physicians, prescription of approved medication, and planning of future treatment and referrals. This serves to bridge your care from participating in a research study to getting into regular ongoing treatment with your health care provider. This will be provided at no cost to the study participant.
Most studies will reimburse you for your time and travel for participating in a study. Contact us for details for each study.
1. Advance Medical Science
Research studies are a crucial means by which new and improved treatments are produced. The medications we all take now have all had to be thoroughly researched in order to get approved as effective and safe medications. These took prior volunteers to participate.
2. Spread the Word
Your positive experience in research may lead you to tell others of the valuable contribution you are making to science. The more participants in research, the more quickly a new medicine may be introduced to the marketplace. This can benefit everyone.
3. Help future generations
The advancement of medicine over the last 50 years has truly been an amazing achievement. The next 50 years hold more. Clinical research drives these advancements, and will help our future generations have access to even more remarkable treatments.
