MYELOMA CANADA IS PARTICIPATING IN THE PILOT PROJECT OF CLINICAL TRIALS QUEBEC’S PERSONALIZED SUPPORT SERVICE
Myeloma Canada is proud to announce that it has joined Clinical Trials Quebec’s Personalized Support Service pilot project.
This support service, developed by Clinical Trials Quebec and powered by CATALIS Quebec, offers patients of all ages and medical conditions, as well as their caregivers, the possibility of finding clinical trials meeting their criteria. Clinical Trials Quebec’s team of health professionals guides patients and their caregivers through each step of their search and provides an overview of the clinical trials currently available.
The Personalized Clinical Trial Support Service is a new, bilingual, and free service designed to offer a compassionate and user-friendly support to patients and caregivers in Quebec. The support service’s goal is to provide patients and their loved ones with accurate and verified information, as well as simplified access to sometimes complex information, so that they can initiate or facilitate discussions with their medical team about participating in a clinical trial.
In the initial launch phase of its pilot, the Personalized Clinical Trial Support Service will focus solely on a few patient communities, including MC. “We are very pleased to be part of this initiative which will directly support members of our francophone community in their search for clinical trials. For patients, choosing a clinical trial as a treatment option often means having to learn new concepts and debunk some myths. Among the tools we have developed to support them in this process, the Personalized Clinical Trial Support Service of Recherche Clinique Québec will enhance this offer, helping them determine if this is a good treatment option for them, regardless of the stage of their journey with myeloma,” says Martine Elias, Executive Director of Myeloma Canada.”
Clinical Trials Quebec’s Personalized Support Service is complementary to the other programs seeking to improve Quebec’s clinical research environment and serves as an opportunity for participants to obtain a summary of the various clinical trials that correspond to their needs.
