This project, funded by a supplement through Dr. Amelie Ramirez’ Redes En Acción program, would use patient navigation to increase recruitment of children from the Texas-Mexico border region called the Lower Rio Grande Valley (LRGV) into hematology/oncology clinical trials. Dr. Langevin, who heads the South Texas Pediatric Minority-Based Community Clinical Oncology Program (STP-MB-CCOP), will work with Drs. Ramirez and Velez to stimulate collaboration among partner STP-MB-CCOP institutions to recruit and train a patient navigator/clinical research associate (PN/CRA) to boost clinical trial enrollment and patient satisfaction, specifically designed for the needs of LRGV pediatric hematology/oncology patients.
The Texas-Mexico border region
The project is currently under way. Once its effectiveness is evaluated, this model would be available to all STP-MB-CCOP partners to develop unique study systems to increase clinical trial enrollment in each institution.
