Audit faults Emory cancer unit data
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 17, 2009
Atlanta-based Emory University's Winship Cancer Institute has stopped accepting new patients into clinical trials after a critical audit of record-keeping for research purposes. The audit was performed by the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group, a cancer research group. The audit found deficiencies in the research files regarding patients, including missing test results and CAT scans, unreported vital signs such as blood pressure and heart rate, and unreported logs on how often a patient took his or her drugs.
