Participating in a Clinical Trial

Choosing to join a clinical trial is something only you, those close to you, and your medical professionals should decide together. If a clinical trial is an option you want to pursue, it is important to understand that each trial or study has a screening process based on a set of eligibility requirements. Not everyone will be accepted into every trial.

Each trial has a different set of characteristics that may include:

  • Age
  • Disease type or stage
  • Treatments the person has already undergone
  • Other medical concerns, such as diabetes or heart disease

Some of the Most Advanced Health Care

  • Participants receive careful medical attention from our research team that includes physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and other health professionals who are leaders in their fields.
  • Our physicians and surgeons provide medical oversight for the duration of the clinical trial.

Coordinated Care

  • Our Clinical Research Coordinators (CRC) guide participants and their families throughout the length of the research trial. The CRC educates patients regarding the study, coordinates all trial-related activities and collects data from patients. Our coordinators are available to answer any questions participants have during the course of treatment.
  • Systems are in place to ensure safety and quality standards are implemented and measured throughout all aspects of the trial.

Latest Treatments

  • National studies offered at Baptist Health Research utilize the most innovative, cutting-edge, investigational drugs and devices while allowing patients to stay in their own community and continue to see their existing healthcare providers.
  • Should a patient require a study outside what is offered at Baptist Health Research, we will help in the search for clinical trials available at other medical facilities.
