Clinical Studies

Carefully planned and closely monitored, studies run the gamut in terms of what is required from patients or parents. Some are as simple as asking a parent (or child) to complete a survey. Other studies may require diagnostic tests, entering information in a home diary, or periodic visits to the hospital.

Should you find a study that might help your child, learn as much as possible about the study’s purpose and the activities involved. Find out what you will be asked to do. Write down your questions. The doctor leading the study, or a qualified study team member, will explain the study in detail. If you don’t understand, continue to ask for further explanation.
