Cooperative Group Coalition Begins
Online Patient Education Service
Coalition of National Cancer Cooperative Groups of
Philadelphia has begun an online educational service for cancer patients
The service, called Cancer Research: A Guide to Clinical Trials,
can be accessed at www.CancerTrialsHelp.org.
“About 80 percent of patients use the Internet for health
information,” said Robert Comis, president of the coalition, chairman of
the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group; and director of the MCP
Hahnemann University Clinical Trials Research Center. “People living
with cancer are especially reliant upon the Internet, because they need to
make quick decisions about their treatment.”
The program’s five modules include
Surgical and Radiation Therapies,
Protecting Research Participants.
