Research Rounds: Examining breakthrough research in bioethics
Academic Oncologists and the Expanded Access Pathway to Investigational Drugs
Expanded Access is a regulatory pathway that allows seriously ill patients to access investigational drugs outside clinical trials. How do clinicians decide whether and to whom to offer Expanded Access, what resources do they need and where might inequities occur?
This lecture will present the results of qualitative interviews with oncologists practicing at large academic medical centers to shed light on these ethical challenges.
