MultiCare Regional Cancer Center has been participating in cancer research since 1983. Our track record of exceptional clinical trial performance has helped us become a trusted partner in national clinical trials. As a result, you have local access to promising new treatments.
Clinical trials are research studies exploring new ways of caring for people with cancer. Our decades of experience mean you can count on us to keep you safe while benefiting from recent advances in cancer treatment.
Highlights of our program include:
We offer more than 50 cancer clinical trials at any given time. Many of these trials test new anti-cancer drugs (chemotherapy). We also offer trials for other cancer treatments, including immunotherapy, targeted therapy, surgery and radiation therapy.
Cancer is one of many conditions we are advancing through research and clinical trials. Learn more about the MultiCare Institute for Research and Innovation.
At MultiCare, all patients are considered for clinical trials. Each clinical trial has a unique set of requirements that have to be met, such as having a particular diagnosis or trying a specific treatment first, to be eligible. We will recommend a clinical trial if our team determines the benefits will likely outweigh any risks associated with the investigative treatment. If you are eligible for a trial, we will explain the trial and why we think it may be an option as part of your clinical care treatment plan. The decision whether to participate is yours.
Our cancer research team includes doctors, nurses, pharmacists and research coordinators. Coordinators stay in close contact with you throughout your clinical trial experience. They offer an added layer of safety by making sure you receive all of the treatments that are part of the trial and catching early signs of complications. Coordinators are also available to answer your questions so that you have a good experience.
