Cancer clinical trials are research studies that involve people affected by cancer. When somebody is seeking treatment for cancer, clinical trials are an option to consider. Becoming informed about cancer clinical trials can help you better understand the details of what a clinical trial is, what common myths are, and what questions are important to ask your healthcare team when considering a clinical trial. This is part of the cancer center's effort to increase the diversity of individuals enrolled in clinical trials. Our educational program covers everything you need to know about cancer clinical trials and how to find one that's right for you.
The Clinical Trials Educational Program through the Office of Community Outreach and Engagement is for anyone affected by cancer, to help people better understand what it means to be a part of a clinical trial. Patients, survivors, and caregivers are all welcome.
Anybody who completes the educational session, as well as the questionnaires (optional) to help us better understand people's understanding, will be compensated $25.
