About The Glossary


To strengthen clinical trials in the oncology community, the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) is developing foundational resources like the ACORI Clinical Research Terms Glossary. This digital glossary of clinical research terms helps establish a standardized understanding across all cancer programs. It is also meant as a tool for cancer programs to share with patients and families to support patient education and improve shared decision making.

The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) has established the ACCC Community Oncology Research Institute (ACORI) to implement clinical trials as a standard of care in treatment plans and to help achieve equitable cancer care delivery for all patients. Learn More.
