ACORI Call to Action Summit: Activating Equity in Community Oncology Research

The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) has established the ACCC Community Oncology Research Institute (ACORI) to build on its existing mission to close the gap in cancer research through optimal oncology partnerships. As part of this mission, ACCC hosted the ACORI Call to Action Summit, a two-day virtual event that explored practical solutions to strengthen and diversify oncology clinical trials in communities across the country.

The Summit's interactive discussions focused around:

  • The importance of expanding access to clinical trials for patients of all background—to ensure the highest quality care
  • Strategies for engaging patients and their caregivers in shared decision-making around trial enrollment
  • Case studies to demonstrate solutions for optimizing accrual and overcoming barriers to trial participation
  • Tools and resources to support care teams, including budget forms, IRB templates, etc.
  • How to incorporate the patient perspective into trial design: insights for trial sponsors

This Summit is open to the public. You do not need to be an ACCC member to view this webinar, but you will need to create an account in order to register. Please click the "Registration Instructions" tab for more details.
