People who participate in clinical research studies play an important role in the development of revolutionary new medical treatments and procedures that will help people all around the world. Participation is a worthwhile endeavor, but it is also a highly personal and important decision that carries both potential risks and benefits.

If you’re interested in joining a clinical study, here are some common questions you might have before signing up:

A clinical research study is medical research done with people. Research studies allow doctors and researchers to improve their understanding of certain diseases so new treatments and medications can be developed. There are two main types of clinical research studies: observational and interventional. Observational studies help identify the causes of diseases or conditions, while interventional studies test whether new treatments, procedures, or lifestyle changes can cure a disease or prevent it from occurring.

What Are Paid Medical Studies, Exactly?

Participation requirements for  a clinical research study depend on specific inclusion and exclusion criteria. For example, participants might need a certain medical condition to participate, or be of a certain age or medical history. Narrowing down the participants helps researchers obtain relevant data while also ensuring the safety of participants. 

By participating in a clinical research study, you are helping to move science forward and ultimately improving the health of millions of people around the world. In addition to contributing to scientific innovation, clinical research studies often help participants modify their lifestyle for healthier living and take an active role in their own healthcare. Participants also obtain medical care related to the study free of charge, and in the case of interventional studies, they often gain access to new treatments that are currently unavailable to the public.

The Benefits Of Paid Clinical Trials

Each research study is different. Some of them last only a few weeks. Most will last several months. There are some special studies that have gone on for years. The longer a participant is able to be involved, the more helpful and valuable the information produced is. Of course, we will do everything practical to make participation as easy as possible for everyone chosen.

At this time, participants would not be able to enroll in multiple studies at a given time. This is due to the possible adverse reaction between investigational medications typically used in most research trials. If you have questions relating to a particular study, contact us.

Clinical trials pay varying amounts depending on the type of assessments performed on a visit day, the length of the trial, and anything additional that may be required by the study. Stipends are generally provided at the end of each scheduled visit. Total compensation for longer studies can range into the hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Our clinical trials are confidential to all potential outside sources. For example, we do not contact the employers or insurance providers of our study participants. It may be necessary to provide information about your treating physician, if applicable.

Unlike participating in a clinical trial, which involves medications and treatments that are not yet FDA approved, clinical research studies do not carry the risk of adverse reactions or side effects. The only real risk to participating in an observational clinical research study is the chance that the time spent does not have an effect on your condition or overall health. 

To ensure each participant is fully aware of the clinical research process, goals, duration, risks, benefits, and any procedures or treatments involved, researchers provide an informed consent document that includes all such details. The consent form that participants sign also includes information about the rights of clinical research participants, how privacy will be protected, and the right to leave the study at any time. Once signed, participants receive a copy of the consent form.
