Description
In order to reduce access barriers to optimally and efficiently recruiting potential cancer clinical trial participants, the capacity of clinical research staff needs to be enhanced to take into account a number of challenges. These challenges come from both outside the community oncology practice (e.g., how to work with community providers to enhance the flow of patient referral, especially among ethnic and racial minorities) as well as inside the practice (e.g., how to ensure that all patients are systematically screened for eligibility and offered trial participation with cultural sensitivity). Despite these challenges, cultural competency training that specifically relates to the research setting is not widely available.

Objectives

  • Explain the rationale for patient-centered care in the clinical trial setting
  • Describe ENACCT cultural competency training activities for oncology professionals
  • Discuss training perspectives and outcomes
