Who Participates in Research?

Monday, September 17th, 2018

Have you ever been curious who participates in clinical research?  People just like you, that’s who!

Coastal Connecticut Research in New London has welcomed volunteers from the community for many years.  Doctors, teachers, lawyers, grandparents, young mothers, young fathers, middle-aged professionals, empty nesters, and people from all walks of life participate in clinical research. What these individuals have in common is their desire to help others through giving of their time, one of their most precious resources.

Some people who participate in research have said they have “tried everything” for a particular condition and therefore want to evaluate a study product that might someday be made available for prescription.

We are truly grateful for each and every volunteer who walks through our door to be a part of clinical research studies.  If you are interested in learning more, call to speak to a member of the CCRstudies team at (860) 443-4567.  There is no cost to participate in research, no insurance is needed, and there is no cost for study-related care.

Here’s What Volunteers Are Saying…

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

We are very grateful for all of our research volunteers.  At the conclusion of each study, we ask our volunteers to take the time to fill out a survey and let us know how we’re doing.  We pride ourselves on treating our patients with the highest level of professionalism and respect, all while providing quality study-related health care.

Recently M. of Norwich noted the study she participated in was to her body what “love is to the soul.”  (Wow…her words!)  S. of Mystic described our site as “friendly and comfortable.”  She continued, “I”ll do it again.” D. of North Stonington noted, “It was fascinating to me. I learned a lot.”

Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do.  Thank you to all those who participate in clinical trials at Coastal Connecticut Research. We are most grateful for your time and for your valued feedback!

If you curious about research, or have participated in a trial and want to share your experiences, contact us at (860) 443-4567. You can also email marylou@ccrstudies.com.

Warm Yourself This Winter-Volunteer

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

Studies have shown people feel better when they volunteer!
It’s that intangible, warm fuzzy feeling you can’t quite pinpoint, but you know there’s a little more of a spring in your step when you do something nice for others.

Winter is not always an easy time for people. The days are shorter, darkness sets in sooner (although we’ve passed the shortest day of the year), and some people find themselves becoming quite glum.  Have you ever though about getting out and about this winter by volunteering for research?

Coastal Connecticut Research needs volunteers!  Are you a person who wants to help others through research?  Then give us a call and learn about the clinical research studies we are conducting.  (860) 443-4567. We’d love to hear from you!  Help others through research and help cure those “winter blahs” in the process!

Give of Yourself this Holiday Season!

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed and depleted?  Has the tin cup been passed around a little too much this holiday season?  Do you have donor fatigue?  Believe it not, there might be a way you could feel better. How?
VOLUNTEER! Clinical trials are now enrolling at Coastal Connecticut Research in New London.

Studies have shown people who volunteer actually feel better. It creates what is called the “happiness effect.”  During this season of giving, consider sharing your time to help advance medical research.  Volunteer for a clinical research study.  You’ll receive study-related health care at no cost, no cost study medication, and, reimbursement for time and travel is available.  Best of all, by participating in research, you can help to advance knowledge about new ways to treat existing diseases and conditions.

So, instead of just taking out your checkbook and making out yet another donation, add to the warm fuzzy feeling by donating your time to research. Volunteers do make a difference!

Call us today at (860) 443-4567 or email marylou@ccrstudies.com.

Who Volunteers for Research?

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Have you ever wondered “who volunteers for research?”

As a research volunteer, your participation is confidential.  We are not going to bump into you at the grocery store and say “Hey, Janie, how’s the birth control study going?”    We will tell you, however, that we have volunteers in our research studies from all walks of life!

Who volunteers for research?  

Let us tell you!

Research volunteers are selfless.

Many volunteers participate in research because they want to help others.  Becoming a research volunteer is a wonderful way to give back and to help advance medicine.

Research volunteers are well informed.

Some research volunteers are investigating health care options, while others are looking at new treatments for conditions.

Research volunteers come from all walks of life. 

Those who have participated in our studies here in New London include nurses, doctors, bus drivers, administrative assistants, writers, artists, designers, engineers, mechanics, stay-at-home moms, business owners, teachers, retirees, and many others.  We’ve had individuals from all walks of life serve as research volunteers.

How can I get involved?

Research begins with a conversation.  Let us know what studies interest you.  Call us at (860) 443-4567 or email marylou@ccrstudies.com.

Volunteers are Special

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

We are so grateful to our many study volunteers! These men and women come from diverse backgrounds, but share a desire to help others through research.

As our volunteers complete a study, we ask them to evaluate their experience with us.  It is always heartwarming to see what comments study participants share with us upon their departure.

Recently “J”  from the Connecticut’s Quiet Corner completed a study with us.  According to “J” her overall experience was “outstanding” and she “wants to come back.”  We hope to see “J” again, and remind those who have participated in a study they are welcome to participate in future studies should they meet the criteria.

There is no cost to participate in a clinical research trial and no insurance is needed.  Call a member of the CCRstudies team to learn more at (860) 443-4567.  Your privacy will be respected and your participation will remain confidential.  We look forward to hearing from you!

 

Happy New Year!

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

We’re on the cusp of a new year.  How do you want to spend your 2017?  Coastal Connecticut Research is seeking volunteers for a variety of clinical research studies.  There is no cost to participate in a clinical research trial, no cost for the study-related care and no cost for the study product.  Reimbursement is available for time and travel.

Research volunteers play in important role in the future of healthcare.  Volunteer participation provides researchers with valuable data on the safety and efficacy of the study product, whether this is an investigational medication, an investigational device or an already FDA-approved medication.  Insurance is not needed to participate in research.

Helping others comes in a variety of forms.  You can play an important role in the future of medicine by participating as a research volunteer. Contact a member of the CCRstudies team at (860)443-4567 or marylou@ccrstudies.com.

Giving Thanks for You!

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

This Thanksgiving season, Coastal Connecticut Research would like to remind all of our volunteers how thankful we are for you!

Research volunteers make a difference in the lives of others and in shaping treatments for a variety of conditions. There are times a research volunteer might participate in the study of an investigational medicine, and there are times a volunteer might participate in a research study involving an FDA-approved medication in a new formulation.  Here at CCRstudies, research volunteers have tested devices as well and participated in observational studies, where there is no medication involved.

Research volunteers come from all walks of life.  Those who enter our research studies represent a diverse population.  What these volunteers have in common is a desire to help others by participating in research.

So, as we gather at the table with family and friends this Thanksgiving, we would like to acknowledge all those who help to make a difference in the world.  Thank you volunteers!  You are truly “medical heroes!”

Contact Coastal Connecticut Research at (860)443-4567 or email marylou@ccrstudies.com if you wish to join our special group of volunteers!

Become a Research Volunteer!

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Participation in a clinical research study is completely voluntary. Much like giving blood, those who volunteer for research are looking for a way to help others. In addition, study volunteers are closely monitored for safety by the study nurses and study physicians in order to rule out any underlying conditions that may be causing their symptoms. Study volunteers are thoroughly evaluated. Depending on the study, no cost research tests may include mammograms, pap smears, MRI’s, neurological testing, memory screening and ADHD assessments. Early detection is often the best treatment, and the research team will provide each patient with a thorough evaluation and assessment. Many patients have noted they have had the most thorough checkups of their life while participating in research. On occasion, volunteers will learn of a condition they are living with which previously had gone undetected.

There is no cost to participate as a volunteer in a research study. In addition, there is no cost for the study product, and no insurance is needed. Reimbursement is available for time and travel. Contact a member of the CCRstudies team at (860)443-4567.
