Making an EMPACT

Minority Nurse recently reported on EMPACT and our focus of attracting more minority patients to clinical trials. EMPACT PI, Moon Chen, was quoted as saying “if we want to achieve the goal of customized therapy, we need to know a lot about how people are different, so we can tailor therapy to the individual’s specific genetic metabolic makeup.” Minority Nurse stressed the importance of the role nurses and physicians play in the quest for better understanding of what the barriers to enrollment in clinical trials might be for minority patients.
