Clinical Research Information for Patients
While clinical research drives the development of healthcare and offers patients new hope & new answers in the face of some of the world’s most pressing medical issues, we know choosing to participate in a clinical trial is no small decision.
At Erlanger, we seek to provide our patients with all the information they need in order to decide whether a clinical trial is right for them. We encourage you to talk with your healthcare provider(s) about your research questions and concerns, to seek out additional resources to gain more understanding, and discuss your participation in a study with family and friends.
In the links provided, you will find several resources that we hope will help guide you in your decision. Included for your reference are some questions to talk through with your doctor, answers to some of our frequently asked questions (related to clinical research), as well as many additional links you may find useful. You can also use the search tool to browse any current clinical trials you may be eligible to participate in.
If you have questions or would like to speak to one of our research staff directly, please don't hesitate to contact us:
