Medical research plays an important role in identifying and developing new therapies and treatment strategies for HIV, AIDS, STDs, and other conditions. BLISS Health has conducted medical research for more than five years and regularly collaborates on clinical trials. If you’d like to learn more about the medical research currently taking place, or you’re interested in enrolling in a clinical trial, contact the office online or call (407) 203-5984.
What is medical research?
Medical research combines observation and scientifically established protocols to test new medications, therapies, and medical devices.
At BLISS Health, Dr. Rivera leads all medical research efforts. She oversees a team of professionals who are trained to determine the usefulness of experimental treatments and therapies for HIV, STDs, and other medical conditions.
What types of medical research does BLISS Health conduct?
The team at BLISS Health conducts medical research on a regular basis. We primarily focus on treatments and therapies for HIV and STDs, but offer other clinical trials as well. Currently, we’re conducting medical research on COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccines.
Can anyone participate in medical research?
If you’re interested in participating in medical research, let your BLISS Health provider know. The staff is aware of all ongoing studies and regularly recruit from the patient base. Not everyone qualifies for medical research. Following a doctor’s visit and a review of your health history, we can determine if you’re a good candidate.
How does medical research work?
No two clinical trials are exactly alike. Before research begins, we provide you with a list of instructions, including how frequently you need to visit the office. Participation in medical research often includes:
- Phone calls
- Email surveys
- Lab work
- In-person checkups
Some types of medical research require overnight stays. Our new facility has multiple rooms on-site where patients can spend the night and receive monitoring.
Does medical research provide compensation?
Most medical research studies offer financial compensation to participants. The amount you receive depends on various factors. If you have any questions, contact us.
