Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine clinical trials at UC Davis
1 research study open to eligible people
“This is a research study to determine parent/guardian satisfaction with care.”
open to eligible people ages up to 21 years
Using a randomized trial design, the goal of this project is to prospectively compare outcomes from a telemedicine-based model of care to two cohorts: patients who receive in-person pediatric physiatrist medical direction (the "gold standard"), and those who receive medical oversight from non-specialist community providers. This project will determine the impact of this new model of care using telemedicine on parent/guardian satisfaction, adherence rates to an evidence-based hip surveillance program, and economic efficiency.
Our lead scientists for Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine research studies include James Marcin, MD, MPH.
