The Research Process and Goals

  • Clinical research projects are scientific studies involving people. They are the cornerstone of evidence-based practice.
  • Clinical research helps determine the safety and effectiveness (efficacy) of medications, devices, diagnostic products and treatment regimens intended for human use.
  • The information gained from clinical research may be used for prevention, treatment, diagnosis, or for relieving symptoms of a disease or associated condition.
