Trauma Research

At HonorHealth's two Level I Trauma Centers — located at John C. Lincoln Medical Center in Phoenix and at Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center — the Trauma Research Program identifies ways to improve the care, management and treatment of critically injured patients.

The research team's goal is to increase the knowledge and understanding of trauma while optimizing a patient's care. The team also tries to increase public awareness of trauma and promote opportunities to minimize the risk of death and disability from traumatic injuries.

Multidisciplinary faculty investigators — physicians in all kinds of specialties — participate in a variety of research protocols. The results of this collaborative effort have the potential to improve outcomes for trauma victims not only regionally but also globally.

Clinical research is conducted according to federal regulations administered by the Food and Drug Administration and the Office of Human Research Protection.
