Brussels, BE

New at EORTC?
Discover the myriad of EORTC activities which support and make cancer clinical trials successful.

This one day journey introduces the strategies and principles for collaboration with the EORTC and is a rewarding trip for newly participating EORTC members (investigators, data managers, research nurses, etc.) as well as industry representatives.

The journey begins with an introduction to the EORTC and proceeds to the conception and design of a clinical trial, statistical design and methodology, and data collection tools. Essential elements are introduced, radiotherapy quality assurance, translational research including biological materials and imaging, regulatory process, and operational challenges, and aspects ensuring good clinical trial conduct are detailed, quality assurance and quality control, pharmacovigilance, and medical review. The EORTC Independent Data Monitoring Committee, clinical study reports, and publication of trial results are discussed.

Course dedicated to Patients and Caregivers interested in Cancer Clinical Research

Brussels, BE

A two-day course for cancer patient advocates

This course is designed specifically for European patients and/or patient representatives involved in cancer patient advocacy/patient support/patient information. The goal of this course is to provide cancer patient advocates with a stimulating and challenging two-day training experience leading to a much greater understanding of the whole clinical trials process. Provided the format (two half days), this course shall be considered as an intensive introduction to the subject. Participation in this course will enable cancer patient advocates to learn about cancer biology; personalized cancer treatment and care; the organisation of clinical research; and very importantly, how patient groups can become more involved in the design and implementation of clinical trials. Several interactive sessions will enable participants to debate on selected topics with experts from different fields, including researchers , but also more experienced patient advocates. Participants should have good English skills.

Clinical Trial Statistics for Non Statisticians

Brussels, BE

Develop the statistical knowledge required to better understand today’s cancer clinical trials!

Today, statistics are foundational to understand clinical trials. This EORTC course provides an introduction to the statistical methods used for the design, conduct and analysis of cancer clinical trials. It will insist on the philosophy and provide a deep understanding of the statistical principles whilst avoiding too technical formulations. With this course, the attendees will be better equipped to design their own clinical research, work in a multidisciplinary team involving statisticians and to critically appraise the scientific value of published research.

This course is aimed at non-statisticians who work in clinical research or at statisticians with little or no experience in clinical trials. For those attendees, who do not have any basic training in general statistics, an optional half day introduction course to statistics and probability (incl. notions of experiment, random variable, distributions, estimations, hypothesis testing) is organized before the official start of the course.
