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.

Please contact the study staff listed in your search results for more information.

Study Details - ID: CHLA-19-00340
Health/Science/Disease Category:
Type 1 Diabetes (T1D)
Short Name:
TC
Full Title of Study:
Team Clinic - Virtual Expansion of an innovative, muli-disciplinary care model for middle school and high school age adolescents with Type 1 diabetes
Phase/Type of Study:
Intervention
Purpose of Research:
The purpose of the study is to learn about how to improve access to care during adolescence/young adulthood and to see if Virtual Team Clinic is an acceptable form of care. Virtual Team Clinic is a new approach to provide care to (middle/high) school aged patients living with Type 1 Diabetes and their families. This new approach consists of Virtual Team Clinic appointments (primarily telemedicine, and/or in person as necessary). The study also incorporates group visits/medical appointments with a multidisciplinary care team (e.g., RD, RN, Social Worker, etc.). Each group will have a special theme and learning experience. You will learn how to better take care of your diabetes, get support from others, and hopefully have fun.
