ASCO's Community Research Forum Annual Meeting: Advancing Cancer Clinical Research at Community-Based Sites
ASCO’s annual meeting of the Community Research Forum was held on October 4, 2013 in Alexandria, Virginia. It brought together community-based investigators and research staff to strategize about advancing clinical research at community-based sites. New ASCO tools developed by Community Research Forum Working Groups were reviewed, including 1) a tool to assess staff workload for conducting clinical trials, and 2) a tool to assess elements of a quality research program. Attendees at the Forum meeting also discussed ideas about new initiatives that ASCO could pursue to support community-based research programs. A networking reception was held the evening before the meeting, which provided participants and Community Research Forum leadership with an opportunity to meet and network. To obtain copies of slides from the meeting presentations, refer to the Meetings tab below. The quality tool is expected to be available through this website March 2014 and the online workload tool is expected to be available in the summer of 2014. The next Forum meeting will take place in the Fall of 2014. Please stay tuned to this website for more information!
