PRE-ACT (Preparatory Education About Clinical Trials) is an educational program designed by the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) with support from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to help patients better understand what clinical trials are and how they work. PRE-ACT delivers clinical trial information through a series of short videos. You may view the entire library of these videos, or choose to have PRE-ACT personalize your videos based on your feedback.

To receive personalized videos, you will need to create a account. Having an account allows you to stop and return to the process as often as you need.
