Clinical trials & research

To learn about diabetes-related research, please visit the Diabetes Canada website.

Advances in treatments are all thanks to medical research. Deciding whether to take part in research is up to you with information provided by your care team. We have many research programs available. Please ask us if you want to learn more. 

Your participation in research can help us learn more about older adult care. It can help us find better ways to help people like you live and thrive. While you cannot expect any benefit to yourself, your participation can help care for future patients. 

The following clinical trials are currently enrolling volunteers. Ask your care team for more information or contact the research team listed on each study or trial. For other information about research at Providence Health Care, please visit Providence Research.
