Why Recruit for ICARE?

Why Should You Become a Recruitment Site for ICARE?

Institutions that provide services for patients at risk of developing hereditary cancer can contribute to the ICARE Initiative by becoming a recruitment site. Recruitment sites will be supplied with ICARE materials, such as bilingual brochures and prepaid response cards (pictured below), to distribute to their patient population. Patient referrals to ICARE can contribute to your program’s Commission on Cancer (CoC) accreditation requirements for research, as well as count towards accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).


By becoming a recruitment site, you would be offering the following to your patients:

  • The opportunity to contribute to research for the future benefit of their families and others
  • Access to new research opportunities as they become available, such as new screening tools or medications for chemoprevention
