Cancer clinical trials generate data and discover new knowledge that advances cancer care. Clinical trials provide patients with options to receive novel therapies. However, most people with cancer are not presented with the opportunity to participate in clinical trials. In this recorded webinar, a cancer survivor, community oncologist, and research nurse share their perspectives on the benefits and challenges of being involved in clinical trials, especially in the community setting. They offer practical strategies and resources to ensure clinical trial access and participation, including how to effectively discuss clinical trials with your patients and colleagues.
