The Oklahoma Pediatric Clinical Trials Network

Initiatives -
 The goal of the Oklahoma Pediatric Clinical Trials Network (OPCTN) is to provide access for the underserved rural urban minority, and American Indian populations of children in Oklahoma to state-of-the-art clinical trials and the transfer of findings that will benefit the health of those children. This project will accomplish three goals: 1. The establishment of the OPCTN to collaborate with the other network sites and the Data Coordinating and Operating Center of the ISPCTN. 2. Provide access to clinical trials to traditionally underserved rural, urban minority, and American Indian populations in Oklahoma by further developing relationships with healthcare providers, developing a cadre of well-trained pediatric clinicians experienced in the design and conduct of clinical trials, and by engaging with the ISPCTN to increase participation of Oklahoma children in research studies and clinical trials. 3. Disseminate research findings to a broad collection of stakeholders in the state, including those that serve rural, urban minority, and American Indian populations.
