Clinicial Trials

What is Clinical Research?

A clinical study is a research study that investigates the safety and efficacy of a medication, medical strategy or medical device. By exploring medical strategies, research studies can help to determine which medical approaches work best for particular people or illnesses.

Studies within your Community

Getting Involved

Clinical Studies bring awareness to people about the cause of a disease and its effect on their overall health. Being involved in a clinical study improves participants' overall health independent of their arm of randomization. It also helps patients to find effective treatments to improve quality of life as well as a chance to try new innovative medications that are not yet available on the market.

Step 01

Connect with a Study

Patient identifies a potential study they are interested in or are contacted by their family physician or nurse practitioner regrading a study. With the patient’s consent, their information is passed along to Bluewater Clinical Research Group.

Step 02

Have an Appointment

You are contacted and an appointment scheduled to come in and meet with the facilitator and Investigator to discuss the study. Within the appointment, consent is reviewed and all questions answered. You will take home the consent form for review.

Step 03

Deciding to Participate

You'll need to sign your consent form if you wish to participate. You will return for a screening appointment where we will review your medical history, complete a physical examination, measure vital signs, process questionnaires, and possibly draw bloodwork, complete imaging, or take an electrocardiogram.

Step 04

Eligibility to Participate in Study

Based on the screening results, your eligibility to be enrolled in the study is assessed. If deemed eligible, you will be randomized to either a treatment arm or a placebo arm. You will also receive a diary to record your treatments and possibly-related symptoms. You will be provided with the interventional treatment or medication. You will return to Bluewater Clinical Research Group for regular visits to review effectiveness and symptoms related to the study.

Step 05

Participated and Completed Study!

At the end of your involvement in the clinical study, you will be thanked, and a follow-up letter sent to your Primary Care Provider summarizing your care during the clinical study.
