10 Responsibilities of the Research Subject

  1. It is the responsibility of the research participant to arrive on time to all scheduled study appointments. We have set aside this time to meet with you to ensure that you are following the study instructions and to monitor your progress. It is our goal to improve your health or appearance with our study treatment. When you do not attend these scheduled visits we can not gather the data we need thus the reason we only pay you for completed study visits. Remember!!! If you miss your study appointment it is your responsibility to call the office and reschedule.
  2. It is the responsibility of the research participant to insure that only you use the administered study product. Do not, under any circumstance, share your study product/medication with anyone!
  3. It is the responsibility of the research participant to come prepared to all scheduled study appointments. This includes, but not limited to, the following:
    • Always bring your study product/medication with you to every visit.
    • Always bring your diary with you, and have all parts of the diary completed before arrival. The diary is our way of measuring your compliance, so if you lose your diary please contact our office so that a new diary can be mailed to you.
  4. It is the responsibility of the research participant to know the medications and supplements you are currently taking. Bring this information with you, and be sure to include the name of the medication, the daily dosage, the reason you take the medication, and the month/year you started taking the medication. Also be sure to inform the study staff of any allergies you have so that we can better ensure your safety.
  5. It is the responsibility of the research participant to read your informed consent form thoroughly before agreeing to participate in a research study. This document contains every detail of the study including the length of the study, your required visits, study compensation, drug/product information, objective of the study, description of the study groups according to the randomization, and alternative treatment options. It is unacceptable to enroll in a study and not know your commitments.
  6. It is the responsibility of the research participant to inform study staff of any problems/illnesses you experience during the study (even if you believe it is unrelated to study treatment).
  7. It is the responsibility of the research participant to inform the study staff of any changes in your current medications.
  8. It is the responsibility of the research participant to retain all products, medications, and/or the containers until your next visit. All study products, medications, and containers (empty or not) must be returned to the study facility upon completion of the study. If you fail to return the products, medications, and/or the containers it could affect your study compensation.
  9. It is the responsibility of the research participant to inform study staff if you decide to withdraw your consent and discontinue from the study. It is your right to withdraw at anytime because study involvement is completely voluntary. All we ask is that you give us the courtesy of a phone call and return for a discontinuation visit.
  10. It is the responsibility of the research participant to use all study products/medications as directed by study staff. Some studies require you to use a medication in a way that you normally would not. For example, a rosacea study may require that the subject treat only one side of the face.
