The Queen's Medical Center
The Queen's Medical Center is one of six community-based cancer organizations selected for the first-ever nationwide collaborative to increase participation in cancer clinical trials.
"An option for treatment is clinical trials," says Karen Ng, RN, OCN, organization team coordinator. "The hope is to have a good amount of clinical trials available to cancer patients so they have the option of staying in Hawaii." Clinical trials can focus on new treatments, symptom management, quality-of-life, and improved diagnostics, all of which benefit patient care.
