Enhancing clinical research and subject recruitment: A Partnership Between OHSU and The Vancouver Clinic

The Vancouver Clinic logoOHSU’s Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) and The Vancouver Clinic have an established collaboration to improve the success of clinical studies.

The partnership between OHSU and The Vancouver Clinic can provide several advantages for investigators, including:

  1. A large population for expanded recruitment for clinical studies, and expert clinician collaborators.
  2. A large primary and specialty care system for health systems research.
  3. Single, OHSU IRB review for OHSU investigators.

Experience gained by the collaboration has streamlined methods for estimating numbers of eligible patients for clinical studies (via EPIC), developed easier access to project development and costing, and established effective recruitment strategies. For more information on the ways this collaboration can benefit your research and to learn about the process of initiating a potential collaborative project, please contact the OHSU Clinical Research Navigator (Kitt Swartz) at 503-346-3540.
