North Carolina Cancer Challenge 2020: Improving Enrollment into Cancer Clinical Trials LIVE
This lecture is an interactive presentation and discussion to consider barriers to cancer clinical trial enrollment in North Carolina and potential approaches to address this. Topics will include the importance of patient and provider engagement, education and resources for identifying research opportunities and available trials, barriers and mitigation strategies to address population disparities in trial enrollment, and other issues. This session aims to provide information and strategies on participant recruitment, allowing individual study teams and/or clinicians from across the state to determine how research best fits into their individual models and how to present research participation as an option to all patients.
These courses are intended for medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists, hematologists, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, radiologic technologists, researchers, pharmacists, trainees, and others who are interested in care of patients with cancer in North Carolina.
