Ever participated in a clinical trial? Want to talk about it?
Treat this blog page like a "YELP" review— a place to let other people know what it was like for you to participate in a clinical trial or research study. You can help other potential participants by providing your perspective and experiences, whether good, bad, or indifferent. This is also an incredible way of letting those who conduct studies know what worked, what didn't work so well, and how they might improve the experience from the patient perspective. We know that the little things go a long way!
Feel free to share as much or as little as you feel comfortable with about the study you enrolled in— you choose the details you want to share. You can also reach out to us here at iParticipate in private, too, either by phone or email. If we can answer any questions or do anything else to help, we're happy to. That's what we're here for.
Thanks for your study participation AND your feedback. Your input benefits all concerned!
All of the above is made possible by clinical trials, and they don't take place without the generosity of patient volunteers. It takes more than hopes, dreams, and prayers. It even takes more than just a great idea from a brilliant scientist! Clinical trials are the essential step in the process of learning what works best and under what circumstances. The more types of people who are involved, the better our information. It's as simple as that!
