Research discoveries and innovative care
Clinical trials are part of medical research, and they are at the heart of all medical advances. We use this method of research to find new ways to prevent, detect or treat diseases. Our research may be used to study new drugs or new drug combinations, new ways to use existing treatments or new surgical procedures or devices.
We are devoted to providing you and your family with the best medical treatments and medication possible. The research conducted at Novant Health enables us to serve our community with innovative treatments and progressive healthcare before it is widely available.
Why participate in clinical research? If you choose to volunteer for one of our clinical research studies, you are ultimately helping us pave a path for the medicine of tomorrow. With your help, our carefully conducted investigations could help our researchers offer hope for many people. In return you could gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available and receive regular and careful medical attention from our research team, which is made up of doctors and other health professionals.
Since our clinical trials are often designed to test the effectiveness and safety of new treatments, benefits cannot be guaranteed. Some trials may involve risks, just as routine medical care and activities of daily living. We make sure to clearly and carefully explain the risks and benefits of all of our clinical trials so you are informed to make your own decision.
