Continual improvements are being made in the field of kidney care, thanks in part to the efforts of nephrologists and their research partners. Each year, hundreds of physicians collaborate with DaVita Clinical Research® (DCR®) to carry out research studies and to get their findings published. Working with big and small drug and device sponsors, DCR has successfully conducted hundreds of clinical trials in DaVita® centers as well as in our inpatient clinical trial unit in Minneapolis.
DCR’s expertise and experience in the conduct of all phases of clinical trials helps us understand and address the needs of physician research partners. As the world’s largest renal research network, DCR brings new opportunities and works diligently to ensure the success of each clinical trial undertaken.
For physicians and clinicians who have a study underway or completed, medical writing experts at DCR can also prepare it for publication. Writers follow a strict publication policy, adhering to guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). Published research is important for testing new knowledge in the healthcare community, providing opportunities for peer review and discussion and publicizing new discoveries.
