Cancer Experience Registry - How it helps fulfill accreditation standard

“To be honest, we rely on this study pretty heavily to meet our trial enrollment goals

for our CoC accreditation, so we just have that internal drive to get a certain number of trial patients

each month and we’re able to ensure we do with this study. Our center did provide us with 4 iPads

that we are able to provide to patients while they are getting treatment

to start and/or complete the questions while they are here, which I think is a huge help.”
