Online Clinical Trials
Observational trials are as the name suggests – researchers follow a group of volunteers, monitoring various aspects of their health. In Parkinson’s disease, this type of data can allow for a deeper understanding of the disease. These factors contribute to its development and the course of the disease for example, all of which help in developing new treatments.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many face to face clinical trials are not currently possible, but technology has allowed research to continue from the comfort of your home. Some studies may involve completing a survey or series of surveys over time, others may involve a video call to discuss your experience.
