Description

There are many potential barriers that impact enrollment on clinical trials. An important barrier is the geographical isolation of rural communities from larger academic research centers located in larger metro areas. Focused on overcoming this barrier, the Masonic Cancer Alliance (MCA) was created in 2008 as the outreach network of The University of Kansas Cancer Center. The MCA members are a network of cancer centers and hospitals from across Kansas and western Missouri. The goal of the network is to enhance the health of the region through community engagement, outreach, continuing education, and to extend the reach of clinical research into under-represented communities. MCA engages health care providers through 1) extending clinical trials and research, 2) telemedicine second opinions and genetic counseling for oncology patients, 3) discipline specific education and networking tele-conference and televideo meetings, and 4) program technical assistance in survivorship care. This presentation will focus on organizing and operating The University of Kansas Cancer Center’s outreach network to improve research participation and survivorship care.
