Checking into a Clinical Research Study
Invite to Check-In:
The call may be anywhere from a week to the night before the Check-In.
This is the call most people think is their ticket to the study. Sadly, this is not the case. The recruiter will call and confirm that your screening results were accepted or that you were disqualified based on your results. They may ask you to come in for a repeat test if necessary or a physical if it was not done during the initial screening. They will tell you if you need to fast before you check in or not. You should plan on arriving at least 30 minutes early. If you are late to check in, your spot may be given to a another subject. You will not be told whether your a primary or backup subject because up until first does, all subjects are considered backups.
