Clinical & Translational Research Services
The Clinical and Translational Research Services shared resource provides central management and oversight of all clinical trials activities of the UH Cancer Center including its Hawaii Cancer Consortium hospital partners. The Shared Resource provides a range of management and quality control functions that are essential for conducting clinical trials research in Hawaiiâ€™s decentralized community practice setting. It includes a central location for all cancer protocols, a centralized database of protocol-specific data, an updated list of currently active protocols for the use of Center investigators, and status reports of protocols. It also functions as a coordinating office for activating and monitoring protocols throughout Hawaiiâ€™s dispersed clinical trial providers.
Quality control functions include: ensuring subject safety and compliance with federal requirements through the Data and Safety Monitoring plan, ensuring staff competency through training for research nurses, clinical research associates (CRA), clinical trials assistants and community office, clinic, and hospital staff engaged in the stateâ€™s cancer clinical trials, and ensuring recruitment of underserved minorities through focused outreach activities.
