Summary

Barriers exist that can prevent minority and underserved populations from participating in cancer clinical trials. Social determinants can be useful for examining patient preferences and factors associated with treatment response and outcomes in order to effectively improve minority recruitment and retention into cancer clinical trials. Therefore, this study will collect data on social determinants of cancer treatment and outcomes to inform future interventions in cancer care delivery.
