Talk Description:

The design of phase 1 clinical trials in oncology has evolved dramatically in the past decade, in terms of the types of drugs used in early experimental trials, the ways in which they are combined, and the points in the disease trajectory at which they are offered.  We will review changes in phase 1 trial design, present preliminary findings from a novel study embedding qualitative decision making research in a phase 1 oncology trial, and discuss implications of this evolution for informed consent from the physician and patient perspective.
