Component Type: Symposium

Site selection continues to be a challenge for study teams. How do you find the best sites, and how to you ensure they have access to the patients and can produce the data quality you need for your trials? In this symposium, we will share results of an extensive survey of physicians to learn about their actual referral patterns for clinical trials and the barriers/perceptions they have about referring patients to trials. We will also explore how to expand the sites we select beyond the typical academic center. How might community networks be better leveraged? How might we partner with patient advocacy groups to identify new and well suited sites to include in our trials? Pulling it all together - how can we then engage physicians other than the research sites to refer patients to our trials? And what information will be useful to both traditional and not so traditional sites to help them successfully enroll trials?

Learning Objectives

Compare data from physicians about clinical trial referral practices and perceptions; Describe experiences and lessons learned from partnering with a community network of physicians as a clinical trial site.
