When we think of charity work, our minds gravitate towards joining the local SES, volunteering in an op-shop, or running community events. But there’s another way to volunteer that can help out many people; and that’s enrolling in a clinical trial.
Being a clinical trial participant is voluntary work, in the sense signing up is your choice, and you can opt out at anytime. However we value those who put their hand up to assist us with medical research, so you are reimbursed for every visit to our centre so you are not out-of-pocket. Participating in a trial means you are seen regularly by medical specialists, and many past participants have cited this frequency of visits as an easy way of keeping their health in check and at the forefront of mind.
We are currently running several different trials that are researching different medications for different conditions. To find out more, head to our clinical trial page.
