Providence Brain and Spine Institute is a comprehensive, integrated program treating all conditions of the brain and spine. The providers at Providence Brain and Spine Institute are dedicated to finding advanced treatments for neurological conditions. This is done through involvement in progressive clinical trials, both sponsored and investigator initiated. Clinical trials are research studies that test whether new medical treatments, strategies or devices are safe and effective. Providence Brain and Spine Institute conducts trials in the following indication areas: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), brain tumor, dementia, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis (MS), stoke/neurosurgery and Parkinson’s. The two links provided on this page will direct you to our participant clinical trial interest form and currently enrolling clinical trials list.
Our research caregivers work directly with our neurologists to identify clinical trials appropriate for patients’ specific type and stage of disease. Patients who choose to take part in clinical trials have access to medications and devices that may improve their health status and quality of life. These patients also help others with the same condition by improving and advancing medical care.
The clinical research department within Providence Brain and Spine Institute is composed of highly educated individuals with vast research experience. Commitment to their field is evident in the number of trials conducted each year, as well as in the positive feedback from trial participants. All eligible coordinators have the opportunity to sit for the SOCRA (Society of Clinical Research Associates) or ACRP (Association of Clinical Research Professionals) certification exam. These internationally recognized professional certifications ensure that our research coordinators have the knowledge and skills to perform responsible, ethical clinical research.
