The first meeting and consent.

During the first visit you will meet with one of the study’s research coordinators. This meeting always begins with the reading of consent where you will have the opportunity to ask your questions. If you agree to participate in the study, you will be asked to sign the consent

The selection period

Once the consent has been signed, the Research Coordinator will ask you some questions in order to know your medical history. Each search protocol is unique and has a list of inclusion and exclusion criteria. She will also perform some of the procedures required by the protocol. Here are some examples (vital signs, electrocardiogram and blood tests). This data will help assess whether you are potentially eligible for the study. The interventions performed and the duration of this period is unique to each study.

Randomization

In case you meet all the criteria requested by the study, you will be able to be randomized, which means you will be able to start the study medication

Treatment phase

During this phase, you receive study medication. There will also be follow-up clinic visits. Some studies also include telephone visits. The coordinator will assess your health by asking you a few questions and collect some data by performing some of the interventions required by the study protocol.

suivi fin de traitement 05

The end of treatment follow-up.

This phase begins when you complete study treatment. The duration and number of visits vary depending on the protocol, but it usually consists of an additional visit approximately 2 to 4 weeks after stopping treatment. The follow-up allows to conclude the study safely. If additional testing is required, the coordinator will contact the medical investigator for additional testing.
