Clinical Trial Enrollment

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.
