To make a referral, follow the procedure outlined below:
- Identify trials appropriate for your patient by reviewing the clinical trial summaries.
- For more information on a particular trial or to discuss a screening visit, contact a member of the research team listed in the trial's summary.
NCI's trial-related treatment does not replace the care of a patient's regular physician/health care professional. NCI:
- Encourages patients to maintain close contact with their physicians/health care professionals to ensure continuity of care
- Generates a letter updating the referring physician/health care professional after each patient visit
- Emphasizes the exchange of clinical information between investigators and community-based physicians/health care professionals
