Clinical trials can be an important part of your care. They aim to find new ways to provide treatments, make diagnoses, manage or prevent disease. Participation is voluntary and each person decides if a clinical trial is right for them.

Clinical Trials Overview

How does a patient get involved?
  • You may be approached by Kaiser Permanente staff or physician to see if you are interested in participating in a clinical trial.
  • You may hear about a trial you are interested in. Ask your doctor if the clinical trial is available at Kaiser Permanente and if the trial is right for you.
