Alicia Staley on Making Clinical Trials More Accessible


Alicia Staley on the importance of making clinical trials accessible for patients.

Alicia Staley, breast cancer advocate and Director of Patient Advocacy at Cure Forward, discusses the need for clinical trials to be more accessible for patients.

The current language used is too advanced for the lay patient. If patients cannot understand the clinical trial, they can't make a truly informed decision about their involvement in the trial. Staley suggests simplifying clinical trial language and boiling the summaries down to a few key points patients can discuss with their oncologists.
