The Clinical Research Group is composed of Research Nurses, Research Assistants and a Data Coordinator, all of whom have specialized training and education in conducting clinical trials. Clinical research may be focused on developing better ways to treat cancer, and/or the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment.
Research Nurses have specialized training in both clinical research and in blood disorders and cancers. The Research team works together, along with the members of the Leukemia/Bone Marrow Transplant Program, to bring clinical research to patients of British Columbia.
The Research Nurses are the primary point of contact for answering questions and providing information about a clinical trial. Research Nurses will help both you and your family learn about a study, what assessments and procedures are needed during the study, and ways to cope with potential side effects. Along with your physician, the Research Nurses will monitor you throughout your participation in clinical research.
