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.



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.

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.
