NCORP PIs and Administrators,

Today begins the new era of NCORP.  We wanted to welcome everyone to the URCC NCORP Research Base, and congratulate you on being a survivor.  We are thankfully, all still in business and looking forward to continued successful collaboration.
We also want to provide you with an update of where we are with our research.  You can download a table of studies that are currently active or soon to be active, along with other information about each protocol here.  We have 5 active studies and 2 more that will be activated in the next couple months.  We will present updates on each of these studies at the annual meeting in September, as well as some new concepts that we are developing.
If you have not registered for the meeting yet, please do so ASAP.  The cutoff date for the conference room rate is August 18.  The registration form and meeting information are available here: 
Annual Meeting Registration.

You will be receiving an Affiliation Agreement in the mail next week that is signed by me.  You, as the PI, will need to sign it, keep a copy and send it back to URCC.  The address is under Jacque’s signature.

This communication has been emailed to each URCC-affiliated NCORP PI and Administrator.  Feel free to forward to other investigators and staff at your NCORP.  We look forward to seeing you again (or meeting some of you for the first time) at the September meeting.

On behalf of Dr. Gary Morrow, Director of the URCC NCORP Research Base

URCC13070: COACH protocol training information PDF Print E-mail

URCC13070 - COACH Logo

Training materials and resources are now available for URCC13070: COACH. Please note:  This study is very similar to URCC13059: GAP-70+, however, there are some key differences.  You will need to undergo a separate training for COACH regardless of whether or not you have done or will be doing the GAP-70+ training. You will NOT, however, be required to repeat the Geriatric Assessment portion of the training.
One important aspect of these two geriatric studies is that patients who are eligible for GAP-70+ will also be eligible for COACH, but not necessarily in reverse.  If a patient is eligible for and participates in both studies, you will receive credit for both studies.  That is, for one patient, you could potentially receive 1.0 credit for GAP-70+ and 1.3 credits for COACH (for patient and caregiver dyad).  The differences, similarities and overlap of the two studies will be covered as part of the COACH training.

The URCC Research Base wants to thank you for your support of the geriatric assessment studies that are newly available.   URCC 13059 (Geriatric assessment to reduce chemotherapy toxicity – GAP70+) is activated and URCC 13070 (Geriatric assessment to improve communication – COACH) will be activated soon.   

Dr. Mohile, the PI, is holding informational webinars on June 12 at 4:30pm EST and on June 24 at 12pm EST for anyone who is interested in learning more about the above mentioned studies.  Together, we have the opportunity to gather information that could help inform policy to support oncology clinical practices that care for the majority of older patients, most of whom are complex with multiple, competing needs.   

These voluntary informational webinars are geared toward physicians who may be interested in participating, but all are welcome to attend (any research staff).  Dr. Mohile is interested in hearing your perspectives on the studies and how to make them work within your practice settings.
