  • Do I need insurance and/or will my insurance be billed?

    • You do not need insurance to participate in research and, if you have insurance, it will not be billed for any visits, labs or imaging performed as part of a research trial.

  • What else is in it for me?

    • All of your study medications, lab tests and health evaluations are provided at no cost to you or your insurance. There is no cost for the study-related care provided by the research physician, nurse, and staff. You may also have access to study treatments and medications that may not be available outside a research study. You also may receive the satisfaction of helping others by advancing medical science.

  • Will I be a guinea pig?

    • No. Confluence Clinical Research is involved in research which we think can potentially benefit the participants and/or the community as a whole. Any medication you have ever taken has been researched in similar ways with the help of people who volunteer for research studies.

  • What will research prove?

    • Research is the best way to determine what works best in preventing, detecting, and treating diseases. Some studies help find safer and more effective medicines than those currently prescribed while other studies compare commonly prescribed medications to determine which works the best and is safest.

  • What about side effects?

    • Your health and safety are the top priorities. All medicines currently available have possible side effects that may be experienced by some. It is important to weigh the benefits and risks of taking any medications. Our research team is there to carefully track any side effects as well as benefits you may have.

  • Is it risky to participate in a study?

    • Research standards are very strict; this helps to ensure the maximum safety of participants. Studies are designed to identify side effects and benefits. Although all medications can have side effects and risks, each study we conduct has been reviewed by teams of government and research experts to ensure the potential benefits outweigh any risks of the study.

  • What does my doctor think about this study?

    • Clinical Research is important to help advance medical science and improve the quality of healthcare. Our Confluence doctors find value in what we can learn from Clinical Research and it often provides benefits to patients involved. Your decision to enter a study is optional and does not interfere with your ongoing care with your doctor and your care team.
