Clinical research is a vital component of today's ever-evolving healthcare field, allowing physicians and providers to break new ground and giving patients new alternatives to lifesaving treatment options. UnityPoint Health – Meriter regularly participates in clinical research — giving us the opportunity to test the safety and effectiveness of new treatments such as medicines, medical procedures and devices.
Patients volunteer to participate in clinical research because they hope it will benefit them and because they want to contribute to a research effort that helps patients in the future. Whether the outcome of clinical research is beneficial or disappointing, patients involved in clinical research are helping to find new and better treatments.
