The Role of a Volunteer

A volunteer’s role is important to researchers in understanding specific health issues.  During our gathering of general medical information, it becomes the volunteer’s responsibility to provide accurate information about their health, medication, and family’s medical history.  All information obtained is held confidential and is used to properly qualify patients for a study. Once a volunteer qualifies for the study of interest and is enrolled, full participation of the following will aid in successful study results:
 
  • Attend all scheduled visits and take the study-related medication as instructed (if supplied)
  • Follow the study-related procedures as instructed
  • Complete written or electronic diaries (if required)
  • Alert our staff of any adverse affects
  • Report any medical changes or new medications
