Communicating About Phase 1 & Phase 2 Trials: 5-DVD set and Facilitator Handbook
This handbook and modules follow on from the first and second series of training materials designed to help doctors, nurses and others when communicating with patients and their relatives about clinical trials. The earlier series focussed on randomised trials while this one deals with the complex discussions of phase 1 and 2 clinical trials. The handbook has two main parts; part one comprises five separate modules or topic areas described briefly. Part two, the appendix, contains referral letters, trial summaries, an ethical perspective to early phase trials and summary statements from healthcare professionals who took part in the filming of the DVDs.
- DISC 1: STANDARD + NEW AGENT PHASE 1 TRIAL (KU36-73)
- DISC 2: PHASE 1 MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY TRIAL (CHILOB)
- DISC 3: END OF TREATMENT CONSULTATION
- DISC 4: PHASE 1 DOSE ESCALATION TRIAL (LY2181308)
- DISC 5: PHASE 2 TARGETED TREATMENT TRIAL (ERLOTINIB)
A number of factors have been identified that hinder the recruitment of patients into randomised clinical trials. These include the pressures created by the changes in the delivery of cancer services, concern about ethical and medico-legal issues, attitudes of patients, doctors and nurses and difficulties with communication about trials.
Following requests for training materials, we designed a comprehensive educational package to help doctors, nurses and others when communicating about trials.
The educational package aims to improve communication through the provision of multiple scenarios to cover different challenges faced by healthcare professionals.
