About Improving Access to Information about Cancer Clinical Trials

The National Cancer Institute believes that community input is critical to ensuring easy and effective access to information about clinical trials. We want to hear from you

  • Patients, caregivers, and patient advocates
  • Health professionals – physicians, nurses, patient navigators
  • Technology innovators, developers, publishers

Let us know your ideas for how to make clinical trials information easier to find, easier to understand, and easier to use.

Your ideas will inform changes that NCI will make on its website and its information services to make it easier to find information about clinical trials.
