Online tool aid patient access to experimental drugs

In an effort to help doctors navigate the regulatory maze required to get investigational treatments for patients--as opposed to getting them for research purposes--the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the FDA have developed three educational modules. The course walks physicians through the process of gaining access to the drugs, providing a process overview, help in completing the application, and responsibilities concerning informed consent. The modules are free, and include links to templates for use in the process. Article | Modules
