The proposed study will include patients with non-haematologic cancer. Eligible patients will be invited to consent for participation in our study using standard demographic data collection forms and patient satisfaction questionnaires.
Cancer patients interested in learning more about clinical trials would be invited to go to the kiosk. A summer student approved and hired according to LHSC/Lawson criteria will be available from 0900-1630 daily for general assistance. If the student is overwhelmed by questions or numbers of patients, the Research Navigator or designate would be called to assist.
An information kiosk will be placed at the patient library on the ground floor of the LRCP. This kiosk will be outfitted with a computer and signage briefly outlining the title and purpose of the kiosk. Cancer patients interested in learning more about clinical trials would be invited to participate in our study by signing a consent form allowing the Research Navigator to contact them if they expressed interest in knowing more about a clinical trial.

|Clinical Trial Kiosk||
Other: Clinical Trial Kiosk
Kiosk will consist of a patient facilitator and a computer with access to general information about clinical trials and information specific to active clinical trials at the facility. Patients will be made aware of the kiosk via a large banner visible in the clinic above the kiosk.
- Change in accrual rate [ Time Frame: 4 months (A two month rate of accrual (May-June, 2018) will be determined before opening the kiosk. A second two month accrual period (August-September) will be used to assess the change in trial accrual. ]Our primary objective is to quantify the clinical trial accrual rates in a subset of trials that are selected as priority trials and are open both two months before and three months after implementation of the clinical trial information kiosk. Accrual rates before and after implementation will be compared.
- Proportion of patients requesting research navigator contact [ Time Frame: 3 months ]1. To determine the proportion of patients who accessed the kiosk provided information so that they could be contacted by the Research Navigator.
- Proportion of patients contacted eligible for clinical trial [ Time Frame: 3 months ]2. To determine what proportion of patients who were contacted the research navigator were eligible to participate in a clinical trial.
- Proportion of eligible patients participating in clinical trial [ Time Frame: 5 months ]To determine what proportion of patients eligible for a clinical trial actually participated.
- Satisfaction with kiosk [ Time Frame: 2 months ]To evaluate patient satisfaction with the clinical trial information kiosk using a Likert scale.
- Proportion of patients accessing kiosk [ Time Frame: 2 months ]To determine the number of individuals who interacted with the information kiosk compared to total number of cancer patients seen in clinic when the kiosk is open.
- Demographics [ Time Frame: 2 months ]Demographic correlations of patients seeking additional information. This will include age, sex, urban/rural status obtained from electronic health records. Patients will also be asked to voluntarily provide information on income, occupational status and whether they had previously been approached about a cancer clinical trial.
