Raising awareness among African Americans about the importance of clinical trials in cancer treatment was a major focus of the Urban Cancer Project®. PHTV used its culturally-specific production process to create this video that was tested in a clinical setting among patients and in community settings.
This video contains excerpts from a 20-minute training video that uses the lived experiences of African American residents in Cleveland’s public housing estates to help providers understand some of the daily living issues along with ethnomedical values and beliefs that may act as barriers or facilitators to participating in state of the art cancer care.
