[MINI-PODCAST] Ep 63: Advanced Practitioners’ Role in Research

July 13, 2021

Find the CANCER BUZZ podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, or wherever you get your podcasts!

In this episode, we'll explore how oncology advanced practitioners (APs) can play a greater role in clinical research and, according to a recent national study, have a strong interest in doing so. Hear how APs can leverage their deep role in the day-to-day cancer care decisions to improve diversity in clinical trials by bringing their experience to trial design and the accrual process.

We deal with the side effects of treatment. We know how to identify... and manage adverse events. So in the realm of clinical research, it just makes a ton sense for us to be managing patients on trial.”
