qClinical and translational research is a crucial link to the improvement of clinical care and practice. Many of the elements that are involved--physicians, nurses, pharmacists, laboratory testing, medical records--are also involved in the delivery of care to patients. Yet in the conduct of clinical research, these elements are arrayed in different configurations and constrained by rules and regulations that are distinct from those that guide the practice of medicine.
