7 steps to get involved in a clinical trial
Bravo! You have taken the first step to taking part in a clinical trial. It only takes a few minutes to give us some details about yourself; this helps us make contact with you again for any future studies you might be eligible for.
A Recruitment Coordinator will be the first person you speak with. They are here to answer any of your initial questions—as well as asking some of their own to assess your eligibility. If you are suitable, they will book you in for an appointment at our clinic to meet the medical team.
At the clinic, you’ll first have a one-on-one meeting with one of our healthcare providers. They will answer all of your questions and will talk you through the Participant Information and Consent Form. Once you've signed the consent form, you will move through to medical screening.
During the medical screening (which typically happens the same day you sign the consent form), our clinic team will take a range of measurements, including weight, height and blood pressure. They will most likely take some blood and possibly urine samples for analysis.
If your screening results meet the trial requirements, you’ll be invited to take part in the trial. During the in-patient stay, participants are given trial therapy and monitored regularly. All you need to do is kick back, relax and enjoy your stay with us.
Following your stay with us, we may need you to attend some follow-up out-patient appointments, where you’ll continue to be monitored until the end of the study. We’ll let you know how frequently we need you to visit at the beginning of the study.
While we know you are doing this because you are awesome and want to make a difference, it’s only right that you are compensated for your precious time. Depending on the study, typical reimbursement is approximately $350 per day.
To ensure that the development of these important medical treatments can proceed swiftly, most of our studies include a handful of ‘alternate’ participants. This way we have a back-up option in case someone needs to drop out. Alternates are discharged after the other participants finish dosing. Alternates are compensated for any time they spent participating in the study so far, and will receive priority dosing during the next trial, should they choose to participate again.
