Dr. Rafeh Naqash, one of the participants in the GRACE Patient Education Ambassador Program, shares a fantastic video series on understanding clinical trials.
For this series, Dr. Naqash speaks with Ivy Elkins, Patient Advocate and Lung Cancer Survivor and founder of the EGFR Resisters Patient Group, (https://egfrcancer.org/founders/) and Fumiko Chino, MD, a Radiation Oncologist with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (https://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/doctors/fumiko-chino).
In these first videos, Drs. Naqash and Chino and Ms. Elkins discuss:
the phases of clinical trials and what they mean
- how medical data will be used and if it would be used without the participant's knowledge
- whether clinical trials are only for people who have no other options
- eligibility for clinical trials
- what a ‘first-in-human' trial means, and whether participants are a ‘guinea pig’
