Do I Have To Travel Or Switch Doctors To Participate In A Cllnical Trial?

Next »


Even if there is no clinical trial in the area in which you live, you may not have to leave home or see a new doctor to participate in a clinical trial.

Many local hospitals are affiliated with clinical trials through the Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) of the National Cancer Institute. This allows you to participate in a clinical trial while staying closer to home. 

Even if there is no local way to participate in a clinical trial, most trials minimize the amount of travel. They also allow your own cancer doctor to handle most of the care. Some even provide travel expenses for people who participate in their trial.
