Volunteering for a VA Study


Why VA research matters?

Research studies are important, because they can help provide:

  • an organized, methodical way to learn more about a specific concern
  • answers about whether or not a treatment is effective
  • a better understanding about which health care services are effective and efficient
  • opportunities to test whether a drug or piece of equipment is safe and effective
  • answers to questions about the best way to treat or prevent an illness
