The overarching mission of the Population Research And Clinical Trials In Cancer Equity (PRACTICE) Shared Resource Core is to enhance accrual to therapeutic clinical trials while expanding access for minority and underserved patients to research studies across the cancer care continuum. The PRACTICE Shared Resource Core will implement strategies to further benefit the Nashville General Hospital patient base, promote investigator-initiated research and extend the Partnership’s reach to the underserved in the Nashville MSA. The MVTCP has great strength in population sciences research that will enhance the existing strength in clinical research. The PRACTICE Core worked extensively with the full projects, and will assist with implementation of Full Project 1 study and dissemination of the results. PRACTICE Core will also support other clinical and population-based science research across the cancer care continuum, illustrated in three thematic domains focused on decreasing cancer health disparities: prevention and early detection; interventional trials and observational studies during and following treatment; implementation of healthcare interventions to improve cancer care delivery.
