At Christiana Care, we believe that the best medical care for tomorrow can only be developed by studying the care we give today, learning from it and proposing improvements to it. This is the essence of clinical research. Christiana Care participates in clinical research programs of high quality, and may invite patients or members of our community to join with us.
All participation in clinical research at Christiana Care is voluntary. We have an active scientific, ethical, safety and patient rights program that works to select and undertake only the best projects. Much of the clinical research we undertake is as part of large, national, cooperative studies to identify new treatments for a number of diseases. Our physicians and staff may also design specific research studies at our institution. On the following pages, we invite you to learn more about clinical research at Christiana Care, and to contact any of the research programs that may interest you.
