The research staff at MultiCare Institute for Research & Innovation is dedicated to advancing patient care by offering people the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge clinical research. A qualified team of Physician Investigators, RNs, LPNs, Medical Assistants, Certified Clinical Research Coordinators, and Research Assistants work diligently to deliver quality data to sponsors, while providing personalized care to our study participants.
The Institute for Research & Innovation partners with both MultiCare employed physicians as well as community physicians specializing in a variety of therapeutic areas. Each clinical trial or research study is lead by a Principal Investigator who is an experienced physician researcher in the study’s primary focus area. Many of the Institute’s physician researchers have more than 20 years experience conducting clinical research.
We also partner with and support non-physician researchers to include PhD researchers and nurse researchers. We know that many of the questions that need to be answered that affect improved patient outcomes and care are asked at the bedside. As such, the Institute is focused on supporting researchers who are interested in developing their own research studies to explore better health outcomes through comparative effectiveness research, evidenced based practice research, and the like.
