Would you lend a hand?

Both patients and VCH staff play a vital role in research activities at Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute (VCHRI). Part of VCHRI’s mandate to support and foster innovative health research is only made possible when people choose to participate in research.

VCH employees reviewed and conducted 432 research studies in 2016, and 2,192 over the past five years.

People say yes to research for many reasons. Whether you are healthy or have a medical condition, there are opportunities to participate.

To better connect individuals to health research opportunities, and as part of their ongoing health research participation awareness campaign, VCHRI has launched a new website – vchri.ca/participate – that allows the public to more easily search through VCHRI-registered clinical trials and studies. The website’s unique directory categorizes all trials and studies by health condition and/or body system, enabling potential participants to identify areas of study that they’re interested in.

Register your research study

If you are a researcher involved in research at VCH, please ensure to register your research study or clinical trial on the VCHRI directory. Contact Stephania Manusha stephania.manusha@vch.ca for more information.

If you have feedback about the Participate in Research website please contact Vivian Sum vivian.sum@vch.ca.

VCHRI is also rolling out transit ads to support the new website and raise awareness about the critical importance of participating in health research. Between March and April, ads will be located on the Oakridge Street trolley routes, including the 99 Commercial-Broadway / UBC (B-Line) to cover the VGH to UBC corridor.
