What is a clinical trial?

Clinical trials are research studies designed to evaluate experimental treatments and procedures. Most breakthroughs in the diagnosis, treatment, and care of patients with cancer exist because of clinical trials.

Clinical trials have specific treatment plans with specific eligibility criteria. Criteria differ from study to study, and are frequently based on age, sex, type/stage of cancer, medical history, and current health status.

Participation in a trial requires the ability to travel to the clinical trial center (in this case, the Disney Family Cancer Center).

For more information, please contact our clinical research team at DFCC_Clinical_Research@providence.org.

The Providence Center for Clinical Genetics and Genomics can help you understand how genetics influences your health and that of your family members.

While our focus is hereditary cancer, we also meet with people who have a personal or family history of inherited forms of cardiovascular or neurological disease, individuals and couples interested in preconception carrier screening, and those with concerns for other familial conditions.

Why Choose Us for Your Cancer Care?

We know that every patient is unique. No two patients – or their treatment plans – are the same. This is why we take a highly personalized approach to your cancer care and we always put our patients first. Our expert clinicians work with you to develop a specialized treatment plan that fits your personal needs, because we know this results in the best outcomes. And, of course, you receive the cutting-edge treatment and compassionate care Providence is known for.

As our patient, you and your loved ones are supported by an entire care team throughout your treatment journey. Our board-certified medical oncologists use the most advanced techniques in your diagnosis and treatment. They work closely with an extensive team that includes nurse navigators, specialists and other caregivers who provide a range of support services – from prevention and education to nutrition, integrative medicine and counseling.

Cancer doesn’t discriminate, but access to great cancer care hasn’t always been the same for everyone. At Providence, we are deeply committed to making sure every patient we treat has access to the best cancer care. We value, respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual and spiritual identities of each member of our diverse communities, and we never turn a patient away. Instead, we work harder to make sure every patient is treated equally and with dignity – whoever you are, and wherever you're at.

When you become a patient at Providence, you become part of a collaborative cancer-care network that often exceeds national measures for patient outcomes. This network includes award-winning physicians, scientists, researchers and caregivers across 51 hospitals in seven states. The power of this network, combined with the expertise of your local team, means you’re getting the best, most compassionate care. And if you need to meet with a specialist outside your area, we’ve got telehealth technology to help. Our network is one of the reasons 50,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients choose Providence each year.

Providence cancer research provides options, and hope, for patients seeking advanced therapies. We’re proud of our history of groundbreaking firsts and pioneering clinical trials: Providence led the international trial of the first immunotherapy to be approved for patients with melanoma. We conducted the first successful gene-engineered T-cell therapy for metastatic pancreatic cancer. And we have over 90 years of radiation research. As a Providence patient, you have the opportunity to participate in – or benefit from – one of over 1,300 new clinical trials that begin each year.
