Canadian Cancer Trials Group Bulletins

Ethics Regulatory

Ethics Research Associates

The Ethics and Regulatory Group is excited to announce a new approach to the way we assign Ethics Research Associates to trials.

Effective February 1st, centres will be assigned one Ethics Research Associate for all of their Canadian Cancer Trials Group-coordinated trials. The Ethics Research Associate assigned to a centre will be the primary ethics contact for all ethics-related issues (regardless of trial affiliation or disease site). We hope this will establish an ideal working relationship with centres by improving communication and maintaining an open dialogue.

We would like to emphasize that while Ethics Research Associate assignments are changing, current ethics practices remain unchanged and centres should continue to operate accordingly. Final Ethics Research Associate centre assignments will be provided shortly; please stay tuned for more information.
