Research at VITA: The Cancer Survivor Registry
As part of the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, the VITA program offers cancer survivors the chance to take part in innovative research studies on survivorship. These ongoing studies advance our understanding of the late and long-term effects of cancer treatment. The knowledge gained from these studies helps us improve the quality of life for cancer survivors. In fact, the strategies used in the VITA program are a direct result of past research conducted by investigators at UCLA and throughout the country.
If you'd like to be a part of this research, the first step is enrolling in the Cancer Survivor Registry (CSR) at UCLA. The CSR is a completely voluntary registry. We use the registry to identify cancer survivors who may be eligible for currently active or future research studies available at UCLA or collaborating institutions.
The registry helps us gather in one place the demographic characteristics, past medical histories, cancer and other treatments and current health problems of cancer survivors. In addition, the registry will help us to gather data assessing the psychosocial impact of cancer survivorship and to evaluate its effects on subsequent health behaviors, and interpersonal and family relationships.
Participation in the CSR is completely voluntary. It is not part of any treatment you are receiving or have received at UCLA. Your decision to participate in the CSR or not will have no effect on your treatments you receive through the VITA program.
