Teaching patients how to look their best. Please join us for our next meeting.
For patients dealing with their cancer experience, the decision to take part in a clinical trial is very personal. In making treatment decisions, many medical professionals believe patients have not weighed all their options unless they consider participating in a clinical trial. Treatment options provided by clinical trials are sometimes unavailable any other way.
The Family Cancer Center strongly believes it is essential that all its patients make fully informed decisions regarding their cancer care. Often, some of the best options are clinical trials. When a patient is invited to consider participation in a research study, it is important that he or she understand the purpose, risks, and benefits. This process is known as informed consent. The patient’s physician and research nurses will guide the patient through this process. As a community-based cancer center since 1997, our core commitment in offering complete care includes clinical trials for most cancers among our six research offices and nine physicians.
