Overview

This multiphase initiative seeks to strengthen clinical trials in the oncology community. In Phase I, a multidisciplinary Task Force was convened to develop two foundational resources: a mini podcast highlighting a timely clinical trial opportunity available to community sites and a clinical research lexicon.

 

Podcast

Alex Spira[PODCAST] Mini-Podcast: Improving Community Clinical Trial Participation
October 13, 2020
Lack of community participation in cancer clinical trials has long been an issue, as has a lack of diversity among participants. On this CANCER BUZZ mini-podcast, learn about the importance of reaching diverse populations with clinical trials where they live and how one clinical trial has prioritized community engagement.

Guest:
Alex Spira, MD, PhD, FACP, Medical Oncologist; Director, VCS Research Institute & Phase I Trial Program, Virginia Cancer Specialists

 

Clinical Research Lexicon

COMING SOON. This digital glossary of clinical research terms will help establish a standardized understanding across all cancer programs. This lexicon will be distributed to ACCC members and may be used with patients when appropriate.
