Clinical Research

South Shore Hospital has been conducting clinical research for more than 28 years. There are approximately 40 clinical studies active at the Hospital. South Shore Hospital earned full accreditation for its Human Research Protection Program in 2009.

We strive to protect the people who volunteer to participate in research. The ethical principles and guidelines for protection of human subjects adopted by South Shore Hospital are published in the Belmont Report. These three basic principles include:

  1. Respect for persons, by requiring that researchers seek informed consent from prospective volunteers before entering a research program.
  2. Beneficence, through weighing the risks and benefits for individual participants.
  3. Justice by requiring that there be fair selection of subjects.
