Proposed Collection: Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU) (NCI), 0925-0624, Expiration Date 12/31/2013, REVISION, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Need and Use of Information Collection: The Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) establishes and supports programs to facilitate the participation of qualified investigators on CTEP-supported studies, and to institute programs that minimize redundancy among grant and contract holders, thereby reducing overall cost of maintaining a robust treatment trials program. Currently guided by the efforts of the Clinical Trials Working Group (CTWG) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommendations to revitalize the Cooperative Group program, CTEP has funded the Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU). The CTSU collects standardized forms to process site regulatory information, changes to membership, patient enrollment data, and routing information for case report forms. In addition, CTSU collects annual surveys of customer satisfaction for clinical site staff using the CTSU Help Desk, the CTSU Web site, and the Protocol and Information Office (PIO). An ongoing user satisfaction survey is in place for the Oncology Patient Enrollment Network (OPEN). User satisfaction surveys are compiled as part of the project quality assurance activities and are used to direct improvements to processes and technology.
OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 24,996.
