Clinical Research and Clinical Studies
Clinical research is an essential part of today's psychiatric medicine. It involves carefully designed studies which test new ways to treat and prevent several different psychiatric illnesses. Research studies assist the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and major pharmaceutical companies in the final stages of the long research process. The studies involve procedures which protect the health, well-being and safety of each participant. Advances in medicine and science are the result of new ideas and approaches that are developed through research.
