MARK YOUR CALENDARSWebinar: Ensuring Equal Access to Cancer Research: How Does Bias Play a Role in Who is Offered Clinical Trial Participation?
Registration is open for Ensuring Equal Access to Cancer Research: How Does Bias Play a Role in Who is Offered Clinical Trial Participation?, a webinar to be held on Tuesday, December 11 from 1-2:30 pm in BRB 105. Presented by the Education Network in Advance Cancer Clinical Trials (ENACCT), speakers include Terrance Albrecht, PhD and Carma Bylund, PhD.
Studies have found that very few cancer patients are informed about the option of participating in a cancer clinical trial. Even at major cancer centers, oncologists may not approach all eligible patients about participation and patients from minority groups or who are 65 or older may be less likely to be approached, regardless of eligibility. It has been suggested that providers' implicit bias, rather than overt prejudice, can influence provider clinical decision making and quality of care delivered, contributing to treatment disparities. This webinar will review the literature on these biases and explore strategies for managing bias to maximize opportunities for equal patient access to cancer clinical trials.
Objectives of this webinar include:
Registration is open for So You Want To Do Comparative Effectiveness Research? The Nuts and Bolts of CER, to be held Friday, December 14 in the WRB Auditorium. This half-day symposium will help heighten the understanding of comparative effectiveness research (CER), identify strategies to evaluate competing treatments and highlight the various research design methods available to perform CER. The course will be taught at an introductory level and is designed to provide resources for investigators to pursue future research projects. There is $25 registration fee, though this fee is waived for trainees, scholars, and K awardees.
CER is defined as the direct comparison of existing health care interventions to determine which work best for which patients and which pose the greatest benefits and harms. CER is receiving increasing importance nationally and internationally as a priority area of investigation and has led to the establishment of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
