Why should I participate?
Study volunteers get access to new research treatments that are not available to the wider public
Study volunteers’ treatment and progress can be monitored more closely than the usual treatment process
Study volunteers can play a more active role in their own healthcare because they can get more information about treatments and disease by being part of a clinical trial
Study volunteers can receive care not covered by their insurance when enrolled in a clinical trial
Study volunteers feel empowered knowing that their contribution to clinical research will help advance medical treatments for future generations
Overall, being a research subject is a pretty good bargain.
