At some point in their cancer treatment journey patients may be given the opportunity to participate in clinical trials involving systemic therapy drugs. Clinical trials can help to improve patient outcomes and we, along with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, are strongly supportive of these clinical investigations.
How to submit a new request
Prior to submitting a new request, please search the clinical trials assessment table to find out if your clinical trial is listed as pending or complete. In such cases, there is no need to submit a new request. The status of pending requests will be updated periodically.
To submit a new request, the applicant, a practicing clinician affiliated with an Ontario hospital or cancer centre who is involved in the clinical trial recruiting at their site, must complete the Systemic Treatment Clinical Trials Request Intake Form and submit to email@example.com.
The completed request intake form is used to assess whether the cancer drugs used in the clinical trial or subsequent to the clinical trial can be publicly reimbursed, as well as the funding for the drug preparation, administration and delivery, and related clinical care for patients.
All feedback and questions concerning the policy, funding principles, or individual assessments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
