Because of the necessity for diverse stakeholders to work toward a common goal, this workshop (and one to follow in 2012) will convene stakeholders for discussions of how best to achieve the aims underlying the IOM recommendations and to summarize progress thus far.


The goals of the workshops are to:

1. Establish a venue to promote a collaborative approach by all stakeholders to implement recommended changes;

2. Provide a forum to ensure public involvement;

3. Document changes that take place; and

4. Facilitate progress toward the IOM committee’s goal of ensuring the continued viability and increased productivity of an NCI-funded clinical trials system with widespread academic involvement and community outreach.
