We cant believe that some clinical trial websites and/or commercials still use actors to portray study participants and then have those actors “share” their clinical trial experiences. Well fear not, here at The Clinical Trials Guru we have dozens of real study participant interviews and this video showcases another, thanks to Alan. Let us know what you think.

In today’s video, Don shares some shocking information he received about how some patients selling their psychiatric medications to other people who are seeking these medications but have no means to see a psychiatrist and may not even have a legitimate need for them. While this particular topic is not clinical-trial specific, the story originated from someone whom Don became acquainted with because of a clinical trial. Nonetheless, this is a disturbing issue that may also be occurring in clinical trials across the country for all that we may know. Let us know your thoughts.
Don received a question from a viewer out there who would like to expand his clinical trial research company from one site into three sites. He asked Don for some advice in regards to the best ways to go about doing this efficiently. Don and Dan thought it would be great to do a video on this subject in order to help this viewers and any other viewers who may be interested in planning the future of their clinical trial business.
This video is for the research sites out there conducting clinical trials. We recently received a question from someone working at a research clinic who asked us our opinion on study brokers. Basically a study broker is an individual or company that will attempt to secure a clinical trial for a research clinic or Principal Investigator to work on. In this video I go through the positives and negatives of working with study brokers.
In today’s post, Don interviews Art. Art is a gentleman who has an interesting perspective on clinical trials. According to Art, clinical trials are not very different from medical practice because in medical practice the physician is in many ways, also experimenting with his patients. In these cases, according to Art, the physician is experimenting what works or does not work on his patients. In a clinical trial, while the physician is following a protocol, the entire purpose of the study is to assess how effective and safe a particular drug or device may be. Nonetheless, this is a VERY interesting perspective brought to us by Art.
In this video, Dan talks about compensation in clinical trials, and gets into the issues of IF compensation is provided in clinical trials, and if so, HOW does it occur. Dan gets pretty specific here but it is important to keep in mind that each study is unique and therefore has its own compensation differences. Dan provides this video in order to address a question he received regarding study compensation in clinical trials.
