Accelerating Clinical Trials (ACT)

Physician-Focused Patient Accrual (PFPA)

Patients recruited to participate in cancer clinical trials are generally informed about the existence of the trial by a participating investigator. The cornerstone of DAVA’s ability to facilitate enrollment in clinical trials is our relationship with clinical trial investigators and research staff. DAVA provides ongoing support to clinical trials through site visits, weekly phone calls, and email. During these interactions, our medical oncologists discuss the trial’s status and diagnose barriers to recruitment. DAVA works directly with investigators and research staff to identify strategic actions to overcome these barriers. The relationships DAVA forms through the open communication with investigators and research staff is critical to keeping clinical trial enrollment "top-of-mind" with investigators.
