This year’s Community Research Forum Annual Meeting is right around the corner. There is an exciting lineup scheduled for the meeting, with participants and presenters representing a range of practices and types of research programs. Participants will engage with one another in breakout sessions to address topics related to conducting clinical research in a community-based practice, including coverage analyses of clinical trials, contract negotiations, exemplary attributes of trial sites, and practical considerations for precision medicine. The meeting will include presentations by internationally recognized speakers on personalized medicine and the challenges of molecular profiling. There will also be discussions about clinical trial opportunities.
The Community Research Forum has also developed valuable tools for community researchers, including the ASCO Research Program Quality Assessment Tool, the ASCO Clinical Trial Workload Assessment Tool, and an online repository of resources. Please join fellow colleagues from community research sites for this great opportunity to advance clinical research. The meeting will take place September 20 to 21, 2015, in Alexandria, Virginia.
