We’ve been getting a lot of questions from potential study participants that are upset because they have recently been turned down for a clinical trial. Don’t give up, many times a study participant may have to call different clinics in order to finally come across a study that they can qualify for. This is not uncommon, but due to the fact that there are so many studies out there, most people will eventually find a clinical trial that they can qualify for if they are persistent enough.
A lot of people learn about clinical trials from television, radio or print ads. Have you ever wondered what happens when you actually call the number from the ad? Chances are, the number leads to a research clinic, and the person on the other end of the phone may ask you certain questions to determine whether you may qualify for any of their clinical trials. While some of the questions they ask may be personal, I explain how this information is usually necessary to determine whether or not you actually qualify for a study. In the industry, this type of questioning is called “pre-screening”. Let us know if you’ve ever been pre-screened and how your experiences were.
