Clinical Trials at Alegent Creighton Health
CHI Health Research Center is a keystone of CHI Health's vision to be a leader among America's best health systems. Through clinical research, physicians at CHI Health may offer their patients innovative, emerging treatments that are not currently available elsewhere. Participants in clinical trials play an active role in their own healthcare, gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available and help others by contributing to medical research.What is a Clinical Trial?A clinical trial (also clinical research) is a research study in human volunteers to answer specific health questions. Carefully conducted clinical trials are the fastest and safest way to find treatments that work in people.
Interventional trials determine whether experimental treatments or new ways of using known therapies are safe and effective under controlled environments. Observational trials address health issues in large groups of people or populations in natural settings. More about clinical trials
