GUIDE FOR PARTICIPANTS
Clinical research helps identify the safety and efficacy of new molecules and medications for the management and treatment of health conditions.
At INSPIRA we carry out clinical studies for pharmaceutical companies in areas that cover mental health. The process of each study is highly regulated by private and government agencies, including the FDA, which supports the rights and safety of each patient
EVALUATION AND DIAGNOSIS SERVICE
Free psychiatric evaluations, medications and laboratory tests are offered for those participating in the clinical research conducted at INSPIRA.
Participation is voluntary and free of cost.
You do not need to have a medical plan to participate.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN A CLINICAL TRIAL?
Each clinical trial has a different requirement for determining whether or not a person could participate in them. These requirements are known as inclusion or exclusion criteria. These criteria are used to help researchers answer the research questions and ensure the safety of every volunteer.
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE IN ONE OF INSPIRA's CLINICAL TRIALS?
To participate in one of our clinical trials, you will have to contact our Clinical Research Center and ask one of our coordinators to provide you with the list of studies available. They, will then guide you through the inclusion criteria of each one. Once identifying the study in which you would like to participate, you will have to coordinate an appointment for a pre-op evaluation. During that appointment, our researchers will ask you questions and examine you physically and mentally to ensure you meet all the necessary requirements.
Ask questions! You have the right to know.
As a participant in one of our studies it is important that you ask questions about the things that concern you the most so that you always know what to expect.
