Cancer Clinical Trials Collaboration


This project aimed to develop a statewide cancer clinical trials collaboration that will enhance awareness of cancer clinical trials and provide improved access to such trials for all Iowans. The project's specific goal was to educate patients with cancer and their providers about the new Iowa clinical trial legislation. Education pieces developed were delivered to oncologists and cancer clinical trials coordinators in Iowa working with the patients who can benefit from this new legislation.
All 99 counties received the Cancer Clinical Trials Awareness Month Media Kit. Over 800 people were reached, including 130 advanced oncology nurses. In addition, 39 NCI cancer centers outside of Iowa were contacted about the project.
