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.
