Participating In A Clinical Trial Kelowna | Okanagan Clinical Trials

Why Participate?

  • Compensation for your time and travel
  • You may receive medical care more frequently from a physician during the study
  • You have a chance to help others get better treatment for health problems in the future
  • We have over 28 years of experience, with over 200 studies across a huge variety of medical conditions.

There are many reasons an individual decides to participate in a clinical trial. These range from a desire to find a more effective treatment option, to learn more about their disorder, to help advance the knowledge surrounding new treatments or to receive better medical care. At Okanagan Clinical Trials, our goal is to provide a positive experience for the many study participants who volunteer for our trials or come to us for treatment. We go out of our way to make sure our facility is comfortable and welcoming.

Your Safety And Privacy Are Important To Us

All our studies are monitored by Health Canada who have your privacy, health, and comfort as their top priority. Good Clinical Practices (GCP) and the Human Research Ethics Committees play a central role in the ethical oversight of research. We are committed to protecting the privacy of all our volunteers and will only disclose your personal information with your full knowledge and consent in advance.
