Count Me In and CancerLinQ share the vision of being able to learn from the experience of every patient with cancer in order to improve the quality of cancer care for all patients. Engaging patients directly to participate and engage in real-world oncology research is a key step to being able to achieve this goal. Together, CancerLinQ and Count Me In will work to engage more patients into the Count Me In research study through the relationships CancerLinQ has at over 100 Oncology Practices and Hospitals in the United States.
What Is Count Me In?
Count Me In is a nonprofit research initiative that enables patients to accelerate cancer research by sharing their samples, their clinical information, and their voices. With patient consent, all data collected by and generated through Count Me In are shared regularly with the research community (after being stripped of identifying information) through freely available scientific databases, so researchers anywhere can help rapidly accelerate the pace of discovery, expand our understanding of cancer, and develop new treatment strategies – breaking down silos that exist in cancer research.
How it Works
CancerLinQ and Count Me In will develop materials that CancerLinQ network practices can use to encourage participation in Count Me In within their patient population.
- Sign up and provide consent for the Count Me In study
- Tell Count Me In where you have been treated
- Respond to surveys about you and your experience with cancer
- Provide a saliva and/or blood sample
- Stay Involved: Receive regular updates about the status of the research and any new discoveries that have been made
