Our Patients Are Our Priority

We could not conduct clinical research at Dignity Health without our greatest asset – our patients. It is our highest priority at Dignity Health Research Institute to provide as many opportunities for clinical trial participation as possible across our enterprise. With over 1000+ active clinical trials and research protocols our patients have significant opportunities to participate in research within their own communities. Our dedicated research investigators and staff primary mission is protecting our research participants, their safety and their data through our responsible conduct for research programs and compliance with policies, procedures, and all regulations through every step of the clinical research process.

Please see the links and resources below for Dignity Health patients considering participating in clinical research. For further questions, please contact us at (916) 851-2283 or by emailing us at [email protected].

What Is Research?

Research is considered to be a systematic investigation involving human subjects including research development, testing, and evaluation, designed to develop, or contribute to, generalizable knowledge. When people become involved in research, many ethical safeguards come into play to ensure you and your loved ones are protected. DHRI has a Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) that ensures these safeguards are properly enforced.
