OCD-UK value the importance of clinical research aimed at furthering the understanding of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Anxiety illnesses. In the last few years we have supported research into all aspects of OCD, from scientific studies through to the impact of OCD on families and the creation of new treatments. We have also supported investigations into the cause of OCD.
We believe it is vital that people with OCD are given the opportunity to participate in OCD research and help influence our research policy.
Each year we receive dozens of requests for our members to take part in various studies, but OCD-UK have a very stringent policy in listing research requests in order to protect our members' rights, dignity, well-being, very valuable time and, of course safety.
Therefore, OCD-UK will only ever list those research projects that have received NHS ethical approval (please note this differs to university ethical bodies) and/or which our research panel feels will make a significant difference, without carrying any potential risk to our members.
OCD-UK believe our policy on listing research requests ensures our members and community can have confidence in participation. The research we take such care to list will only be beneficial with the support of participants. So, if you are able to help, please do spare a few minutes of your time to browse the research opportunities.
