Clinical Research Studies at Southwest Care Center Santa Fe
Southwest Care Center (SCC) takes pride in the care and attention we put into our clinical research program. Our research has led to significant advancements in a number of disease states and provides our patients with treatment options they might not have otherwise. Safety is and always has been our number one concern, which is why we closely monitor and follow strict safety protocols for the participants who are enrolled in our clinical studies.
Studies conducted by SCC may be sponsored by government organizations, academic institutions, as well as pharmaceutical companies that are developing or testing new drugs. Additionally, the SCC team develops and implements studies of its own. All of our protocols and procedures are performed under the umbrella of an independent review board whose primary concern is patient safety and freedom of choice.
At Southwest Care Center, two principles underpin our research program:
- The research must provide an option or options for treating our patients which is otherwise unavailable.
- The research must significantly add to the body of knowledge of prevention and treatment of disease.
Unless we are certain that one or the other of these principles has been met, we do not proceed with a research protocol.
