HEALTH ALERT!  For the safety of our patients and staff, effective March 30, 2020, new patients and patients with disabilities will be permitted one visitor over the age of 15. No other visitors will be permitted into the clinic.  Family members and caretakers may participate in the appointments remotely by phone or video conference if desired. Compass is working with other health care providers in the area to help contain the spread of the novel Coronavirus. We are taking active steps to minimize your exposure to the virus. These steps include screening everyone who enters the clinic for signs of illness, banning most visitors in the clinic, minimizing our own staffing and allowing some employees to work from home, and frequent sanitation of the clinic. We are using personal protective equipment such as masks, gowns, gloves, and face-shields according to national guidelines. We are working to identify those patients whose visits or treatments can be safely delayed, and we will notify you of this if you have an upcoming visit.  We ask that you stay home if you have fever and/or cough.

Cancer Clinical Trials in Portland & Vancouver

 

In this new era of targeted therapies, the role of clinical trials is more important than ever in providing patients with access to promising new therapies and advancing our knowledge through cutting-edge research.

Cancer research has evolved significantly over the last 20 years. Through US Oncology Research, more than 65,000 patients have participated in clinical trials and contributed to the FDA approval of nearly 70 therapies. In this video, physicians share why research is critical to the advancement of cancer care and an important part of their practice.

 

At Compass Oncology, we sponsor more clinical trials than any other cancer treatment facility in the Portland-Vancouver area. At any given time, we have more than 70 active trials. Continuing to provide our community with access to promising new therapies which may become tomorrow's gold standard remains a top priority at Compass.
