Clinical trials play a significant role in improving cancer treatment, symptom management, and healthcare delivery. Patients seeking clinical trial options often rely on oncology nurses to help them navigate the process. ClinicalTrials.gov is a registry and results database of publicly and privately supported clinical studies that can be used to assist patients and family members interested in clinical trials. Learn more about it and how you can use its search tools, study status, and trial results data in your patient education.
