Clinical Trials

To discuss how to get involved in clinical cancer research, contact Shaw's clinical research coordinator: Paige Bordelon, MPH at (970) 569-7608 or paige.bordelon@vailhealth.org 

Patients at Shaw may have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials, which are studies that allow patients access to new methods of treating cancer. Trials follow guidelines to provide scientifically sound options and ensure the safety of all participants. Trials are available at Shaw through a partnership with the University of Colorado Cancer Center, as well as through national research groups such as the National Cancer Institute and National Institutes of Health that allow patients access to new methods of treating cancer with chemotherapy, biotherapy or radiation. Shaw also offers industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated trials that evaluate patient quality of care and translational research objectives. All clinical cancer research is imperative to reducing cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality.
