FCA's Research Registry offers a professional listing of publically and privately supported clinical trials of interest to caregiving families dealing with chronic disabling health conditions, and health and service providers. Volunteers are often needed to determine whether experimental treatments or new ways of using known therapies are safe and effective under controlled environments. We encourage you to read our fact sheet, Evaluating Medical Research Trials and Clinical Trials, and discuss participation in any trials or research studies with your personal physician. Endorsement of studies by Family Caregiver Alliance is neither expressed nor implied.
Graduate Student Research
In order to help further the field of caregiver research and advocacy, we also provide a page for graduate students to post research questions or links to surveys for research projects on caregiving. These postings are free of charge, run for a shorter period and are also limited to a 100-word description.
