A pilot demonstrating the impact of patient navigation on increasing cancer clinical trial participation
New tool for organizational self-evaluation & improvement
Utilizing quality improvement to enhance accrual, recruitment and retention in cancer clinical trials
In the Fall of 2010, ENACCT initiated the first ever National Breakthrough Collaborative on clinical trials. This program worked toward the development of a comprehensive change package with the goal of increasing accrual to cancer treatment trials.
PACCT DC was a collaboration between ENACCT, Howard University Cancer Center, The DC Primary Care Association, and the Catholic University of America’s School of Social Service. The purpose of the project was to educate DC-based primary care providers (PCPs) about cancer treatment clinical trials so that they would be more likely to support patients in considering trial participation. PACCT DC focused on PCPs who serve African American and Latino DC residents—two communities that are underrepresented in cancer clinical trials.
Open to Options, funded as a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was an innovative pilot project between The Cancer Support Community (formerly The Wellness Community) and ENACCT designed to enhance access to high quality cancer treatment, including clinical trials, and provide access to psycho-social support for blood cancer patients.
ENACCT and Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) partnered in the federally funded project, Communities as Partners in Cancer Clinical Trials: Changing Research, Practice and Policy, which explored ways to improve Phase III cancer treatment trials, utilizing the principles and approaches of Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR).
In 2006, ENACCT launched a unique and ambitious four year Pilot Education Program (PEP) focused on community engagement and education.
