A cancer diagnosis can upend your world – and where you go for care can be the difference between confident care planning and confusion. Cancer treatment continues to evolve and improve because of clinical research that scientists and oncologists are advancing around the world.
Every person facing a cancer diagnosis should have access to the latest innovations in cancer treatment, and at SCRI we are determined to meet our patients and their families where they live and work. Where you go for care and who you partner with for your care is vital.
Consider these important criteria when choosing your cancer care provider and team:
- Choose a hospital or cancer care center with active clinical trials in cancer
- Select an oncologist who participates in or leads current clinical trials investigating the latest in cancer treatments
- Confirm the oncologist and care team have access to personalized medicine technology to pinpoint the molecular make-up of your cancer so you can be matched with the most targeted treatment possible
- Ask your oncologist and their team to explore clinical trials as a first care option, especially if there are tailored treatment options being studied that may be more effective in targeting your particular cancer
SCRI offers clinical trials with a network of researchers who have trained at the top academic institutions. Each of our research physicians are embedded in community-based oncology practices across the country so that you have the latest treatments and research options closer to where you live. We also ensure our network of physicians have rapid access to personalized medicine data of your unique cancer through Genospace, a precision medicine technology to help customize your treatment needs.
Please note, new trials open regularly and availability may change. For more information about available clinical trials, please contact askSARAH by phone at (844) 482-4812.
