Information for Health Care Providers

Patients often have trouble finding the information they need to make the right choices for themselves and for their families. Information about medical research studies isn’t hidden, but it isn’t always presented in terms that patients understand. What are the inclusion criteria for clinical trials? What are the potential risks? If everything goes well, what positive outcomes can patients reasonably expect?

As a healthcare provider, you can help your patients navigate the clinical trial space and find the best options for their unique situation.

Even patients ready to participate can have trouble finding a clinical trial near them—and figuring out if they qualify to take part.

You can help.

Whether you direct patients to resources that help them learn more about their conditions, clarify the benefits of clinical trials, or directly find medical research trials for them, they look to you for advice.
