Course dedicated to Patients and Caregivers interested in Cancer Clinical Research
EORTC Patient Days 2020
This course is dedicated to European patients and/or patient representatives. 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. The course program was reviewed by the Programme Committee with majority of patient representatives from different organisations. Participation in this course will enable cancer patient advocates to learn about cancer biology, personalized cancer treatment and care, regulatory aspect of clinical research, drug development, real world data, and very importantly, patient involvement 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 and experienced patient advocates.

CReDO 2020 workshop – Research protocol development workshop
The fifth CReDO workshop is being organized by the Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai and the National Cancer Grid of India (a large collaborative network of 177 major cancer centers, research institutes, patient groups and charitable institutions across India). This workshop – the fifth International Collaboration for Research methods Development in Oncology (CReDO) will be held between 2nd and 7th March 2020 (both days inclusive) in a location close to Mumbai. The workshop is designed similar to only three such workshops which currently exist globally in the United States (the AACR/ASCO Workshop on Methods in Clinical Cancer Research), Europe (AACR-EORTC-ESMO Workshop on Methods in Clinical Cancer Research) and Australia (the MOGA-ACORD Protocol Development Workshop).
The objective of this workshop is to train researchers in oncology in various aspects of clinical trial design and to help them to convert a one-page research concept into a full-fledged research protocol, ready for submission to the Ethics Committee. The workshop will consist of a combination of protocol development group sessions, didactic talks, small-group breakaway sessions, office-hours (one-to-one direct consultation with experts) and “homework”. The faculty will consist of international and national experts with extensive experience in oncology research.
