COVID-19 Implications for Cancer Clinical Research and Quality Care

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a wrench into every corner of the American healthcare system, and clinical research is no exception. In light of physical distancing and public safety recommendations, research programs have made significant adjustments, including virtual approaches to site selection and data collection and increased use of telehealth services. What lessons about clinical research can be learned during the pandemic, and what does it mean for the future of cancer research?

On Wednesday, February 10, join a discussion on the impact of COVID-19 on cancer research protocols and patients’ experiences. An expert panel of past ACCC Presidents will share their perspectives on changes to clinical research during the pandemic, review available guidance, and look at how current adaptations can be made more sustainable in post-pandemic research.
