Benefits of Research for Women

Your participation in research will provide information that may help develop better treatments, medications, or devices to help women just like you.

Participating in a clinical research study may include medical evaluations such as physical examinations, blood and urine tests, vital signs measurements, etc. to document your current health status. You may request copies of the results to review with your regular doctor or specialist at any time.

Every study has its own specific risks and benefits that patients may or may not directly experience. The physician and research team will discuss these risks and benefits with you in detail to help you decide if you are a good candidate for participation. Many participants in women’s research find satisfaction in knowing that they may positively affect the lives of many other women by helping to discover new and innovative methods of treatment that are safer and more effective than current standards.
