Getting involved and benefits

Clinical trials can be pharmaceutical drugs trials or observational trials. They are the only way to understand how to diagnose, treat, cure and prevent dementia. Without trials it is impossible to learn more about memory problems. Clinical trials would be impossible without research participants.

Each trial is dictated by the study protocol. The protocol tells researchers what they have to do for the participant to take part or complete the study. Each protocol is different and therefore the level of involvement or tasks involved is different for each study. Here are some examples of what a trial might involve:

  • Questionnaires
  • Clinical assessments
  • Measurements
  • Blood tests
  • Brain scans
  • Memory and cognition tests
