Purpose: A state-wide telephone survey was conducted to learn about cancer patients' clinical trial (CT) participation. Conceptual Framework: Gulzar's (1999) concept of access as "realized" health care guided the study. Method: An administrative database of a not-for-profit service organization provided subjects. An investigator-developed questionnaire based on Neil & Chessa' s (1998) incentives and barriers to CT participation was tested and implemented for the telephone survey. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to evaluate results. Results: Of 149 respondents, 60% stated that they were not informed of CT options. Those informed included only 19% of male and 20% of female respondents. Of those informed, 76% participated. Initial testing showed similarities in CT participation based on gender, race, and age. Conclusions: The lack of accessibility to innovative treatment options identified by the majority of respondents is of serious concern. Support and evaluation of policies which guide the provision of treatment options to all citizens is necessary to eliminate disparities in health care systems.
