Clinical Trials Education Office (CTEO)
With growing concerns about racial and ethnic disparities in cancer care and the need for cancer centers to accommodate increasingly diverse patient populations, it is important that health care professionals are educated on how their own and their patients' culture influence health care delivery, health behaviors, and access to clinical trials. This self-directed program will stimulate your thinking about cultural competence and help you to understand how culture influences health care decisions and participation in clinical trials.
