Our research is conducted using nationally recognized clinical trials, which offer cancer patients and high-risk populations opportunities to participate in research on cancer treatment and prevention. We have access to these trials through grants from the National Cancer Institute's Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP).
Our participation in NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) means that our oncologists have access to the very latest cancer prevention and treatment research and can use this knowledge to help patients.
Talk to your cancer doctor if you are interested in participating in a clinical trial. They'll help determine if you qualify for a research study and talk with you about everything it involves. Your doctor will also continue to oversee your care while you're enrolled in a clinical trial.
Learn more about clinical trials at Essentia and things to consider when deciding whether to participate.
Talk to your doctor to see if you may be eligible to participate in a research study through the Essentia Institute of Rural Health. By participating in a clinical study, you may have access to treatments, medications and medical devices that are not widely available.
