wHAT HAPPENS WHEN i take part in a cps research study?

Complete a survey

You fill out one of our online surveys to see if you might be eligible to take part, and we’ll take your contact details.

Speak with a research nurse

One of our experienced research nurses will give you a call to ask you some more questions about you and your medical background to confirm your eligibility. They will also be able to give you further information about the trial and answer any questions you might have. The questionnaire also contains further general information relating to the study procedures, visits, timelines etc.

Decide to take part

Once your suitability has been confirmed, you’ll be given an appointment to come see us at our clinic and the time to think about getting involved. It is important for us both to make sure that taking part is the right decision for you! Taking part in clinical research is completely voluntary, and you always have the right to discontinue at any time.

Visit One

On your first visit to our clinic, we will get your written consent to participate. You will meet our nurses and doctors, and again have the chance to ask any more questions that you may have. We want you to be totally comfortable and understand everything that’s happening for the duration of the trial you’re taking part in.


This is where we keep an eye on everything while you take your allocated study treatment. This may or may not be an active medication or treatment, and usually, neither you nor our nurses or doctors know which. This is called a double-blind, and it is why these studies can produce valuable results. Your participation could take several months or longer, and usually involves periodic visits back to our clinic to see us.

The Close-Out

You’ve done it! Once you’ve completed all the steps required in the study, you’ll come back one last time for a final check. After that, we all wait for the final results of the trial when it finishes. Often trials are running in different locations all over the world. If the treatment has been proven to work, you may find that it’s soon available for your doctor to prescribe or for purchase over-the-counter.
