Include clinical trials when you speak with your patients about treatment options.
People who take part in clinical trials for lung cancer receive up-to-date care from experts. They contribute to advances in fighting lung cancer. When you explain clinical trials to your patients, be sure to tell them they might be randomly selected to the group that does not receive the new treatment being tested. If this is the case, they will still receive the best-known standard of care. Either way, they will be closely monitored by a team of doctors and never treated as just a test subject.
Each time a person with lung cancer faces a treatment decision, it is important to explore all options. We recommend that talk to your patients about clinical trials as soon as they are diagnosed and every time they have to make a treatment decision. To find out about studies a person may be eligible for, visit our Lung Cancer Clinical Trial Call to Action.
