CHLA Clinical Research Studies

Having volunteers participate in research studies and clinical trials is critical to our research efforts. Thousands of children and families are involved in our patient-centered studies every year. Many of the treatments used today are based on the results of past research studies and clinical trials conducted with our patients. Our scientific and clinical experts take the best ideas from the laboratory -- to the patient -- in the form of promising new treatments.

By searching our study directory, you may identify research that could impact the life of your child or of another child you know. Because the number of available research studies and clinical trials for children nationwide is small, every participant makes a significant contribution.

In addition to enrolling children with certain diseases in order to study treatments and prevention of those diseases, we also need to study healthy children. Ask your child’s doctor about volunteer study options that may be suitable for your child.

Study Details - ID: CHLA-17-00439
Health/Science/Disease Category:
Type 1 Diabetes (T1D)
Short Name:
Full Title of Study:
Family Communication about Type 1 Diabetes
Phase/Type of Study:
Psychosocial Study
Purpose of Research:
CHLA is working with the University of California, Merced to examine how families with an adolescent with type 1 diabetes resolve daily issues related to diabetes management. People often find it is difficult to manage diabetes with so many things going on in their daily lives. We want to learn from you what makes it harder or easier to manage your diabetes. We hope that your participation will help us develop interventions in the future so that youth, families and health care providers can better manage diabetes.
Adolescents ages 10-15 who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes for at least 1 year and the parent who is most involved in their diabetes care.
Time Commitment/Requirements:
Total study participation time will vary depending on how you choose to participate. If completed at once, either at home or the hospital, the visit will be approximately 2 hours. If completed in parts, the study will be completed in two visits. During your first visit, , a paper form of the questionnaire will be provided. Once you completed the first part at home you will be asked to come in to the hospital to have a 10-minute-videotaped discussion and complete the rest of the surveys. The second visit will take approximately 1 hour. Compensation will be provided.
