Bridging the Gap Between Community Hospitals and Academic Medical Center Care

Description: Lung cancer expert Dr. Maen Hussein, hematologist and oncologist at the Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, sits down with Tamara Lobban-Jones at the World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC) in Denver, Colorado to take a hard look at the viability of clinical trials from the patient's point of view. Dr. Hussein readily acknowledges patient fears of placebos and becoming a guinea pig, but quickly points out that patients have the right to end the trial with options for other trials. He encourages patients to find an oncologist they trust, and then trust that oncologist to find, lead, and treat them through the best, most appropriate clinical trial.
