The DCT Promise: Delivering Diverse Patient Populations
Decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) hold promise to reduce patient and sponsor burden and increase accrual and retention of a more diverse trial population, a key goal for oncology trials. This session provides an update on telemedicine and other aspects of DCTs that are being implemented at oncology sites.

Shared Services Need to Comply, Too: Network & Community Compliance
Oncology community networks and practices have access to shared resources like administration, management, billing, information technology, accounting, and other services so to allow oncologists to focus on caring for patients. However, they are still under the same level of scrutiny when it comes to complying with regulatory criteria and audits. In this session, we will discuss how to best support community networks to help them remain compliant.
