What to Expect
Each Ivy Phase 0 study is unique in enrollment criteria. We encourage you to submit a trials screening request to determine your eligibility. Initial patient assessments are completed remotely, using a variety of communication portals, including video teleconferencing. Our secure trials screening portal will ask you to provide basic contact information, medical history, diagnostic imaging, and any other relevant documents. Once a trials screening request is submitted, an Ivy Navigator will reach out to you within two business days to request any additional information necessary to complete the initial patient assessment.
Our knowledgeable Ivy Navigators will guide you through every step of the trial screening process and clearly communicate important information so you can make informed decisions based on your unique circumstances.
The Medical Secretary handles all the scheduling and works with patients and their caregivers to develop an itinerary of clinic appointments, surgery, drug start date and more. For patients coming to us from outside of the Phoenix area, we will provide information on where to stay near the Ivy Brain Tumor Center and may assist with travel arrangements as needed to ensure each patient’s journey is as smooth as can be.
Clinical Research Nurse
Each time you visit the Ivy Center, you will meet with one of our Clinical Research Nurses. They are your main point of contact throughout the Phase 0 clinical trials process, and most importantly they serve as your advocate.
