Innovative care from discoveries through research
We are devoted to providing you and your family with the best medical treatments and medication possible.The research conducted at Novant Health enables us to serve our community with innovative treatments and progressive healthcare before it is widely available.
Our clinical research team consists of physicians, nurses, social workers and other healthcare professionals that will ensure you have everything you need for a comfortable experience. The process of every clinical trial depends on the type of trial you are interested in, and each trial varies in length. Some studies may last a few weeks; others may last months, even years. Our research team will work closely with you so that you understand the time investments that will be required of you and answer any questions before you agree to participate.
Institutional Review Board (IRB)
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) requires all institutions conducting research create an ethics board or Institutional Review Board to govern the research done at their institution. Novant Health has an IRB that works hard to not only meet government regulations, but to instill the best quality service possible while partnering with our patients and healthcare professionals to make the future of healthcare the best it can possibly be.
