Given the emerging urgent need to better understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cancer care, numerous clinical studies have been developed by various organizations in addition to crowdsourcing efforts. Linked below is a succinct list of current ongoing studies compiled by the ACS Cancer Research Program. This list is not exhaustive and will be updated as more studies are announced.
Are you a surgeon interested in participating in clinical trials but are unsure how to get started? A new webinar and resource deck, developed through the ACS Cancer Research Program, were designed to help guide surgeons through the administrative and regulatory requirements needed to participate in clinical trials. This webinar will detail how to obtain a Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) Identity and Access Management (IAM) ID; how to register with the National Cancer Institute (NCI)’s Registration and Credential Repository (RCR); how to complete enhanced training requirements such as Good Clinical Practice (GCP); and provide information about the NCI Biosketch, Financial Disclosure Form and Agent Shipment Form.
The ACS Cancer Research Program hosted a webinar on multidisciplinary therapy for de novo Stage IV breast cancer. In this debate-style webinar, speakers will review three de novo Stage IV cases and discuss the appropriate treatment options for each case. General surgeons interested in learning about treatment options for de novo Stage IV breast cancer are welcome to watch the webinar.
