Cancer Survivorship Program
We recognize that life after a cancer diagnosis is a lifelong change to your health and lifestyle that affects you, your family, and your loved ones. The Cancer Survivorship Program is here to help provide valuable resources and information to help you navigate the many questions that arise throughout a diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. The Cancer Survivorship Program is a collaboration between the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, and M Health Fairview.
Info and Resources on Clinical Trials
Advances in medicine and science are the results of new ideas and approaches developed through research. New cancer treatments must prove to be safe and effective in scientific studies with a certain number of patients before they can be made widely available. Every clinical trial has different patient requirements. Consult your physician or oncologist to determine whether or not a clinical trial is right for you.
The National Cancer Institute provides a number of free resources on clinical trials for both patients and caregivers that includes information of patient safety and questions to ask your doctor. You can also check out our "What are cancer clinical trials, and why are they so important?" blog post.
Clinical trial myths:
There are many myths about clinical trials, and they are a major barrier to people participating in clinical trials. Thank you to the Masonic Cancer Center's Community Advisory Board and the University of Minnesota's School of Journalism for helping to develop videos that walk us through some of these myths.
