1.  Clinical Trials – The Art of Enrollment 
Seminars in Oncology Nursing  2008;24(4):262-269.
Objectives
Enrollment barriers and multidisciplinary approaches to increase cancer trials participation are presented. Recruitment barriers, research in Maryland, and a Best Practice for cancer trials are discussed.
Data Sources
Journal and research articles, web sites.
Conclusion
Clinical trials have produced prevention and care advances for cancer and other diseases. Trial enrollment is lower for minorities and underserved communities. A comprehensive program for addressing enrollment barriers should incorporate research on barriers, multidisciplinary teams, and education and trial infrastructure in community settings.
Implications for Nursing Practice
Health disparities training, including culturally appropriate enrollment approaches for education and retention of underserved communities, should incorporate community stakeholders and nurse/physician researchers.
