For Patients

Our research is focused on improving care for patients at The Ottawa Hospital and around the world. Patients can play a crucial role in this process by volunteering for clinical trials, surveys or other clinical research studies.

Over the years, our research has resulted in significant improvements in health care, including improved diagnosis of ankle injuries and blood clots, better management of diabetes, HIV, chronic bronchitis, and many cancers, and novel resources to help patients and health care providers make the best health decisions.

If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, the best approach is to speak with your health-care provider. You may also want to refer to some of the following pages:
