Patient recruitment and engagement are critical to the success of clinical trials. Yet despite the tremendous progress made in drug development, recruitment and retention remain a major challenge. Recent efforts to increase access and include more diverse patients adds an additional layer of complexity.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss the need for more diverse and equitable inclusion in clinical trials and share actionable strategies and best practices to connect with previously underrepresented groups of individuals. With the total percentage of minority inclusion for all randomized clinical trials in the United States over the last 25 years less than 4%, the need for diversity can no longer be ignored.
We’ll examine historical challenges, and reasons patients don’t enroll, as well as frameworks to generate rapport and trust.
In this session we will share actionable frameworks, best practices and strategies for utilizing advocacy groups, digital media and language to support diversity/ inclusivity and engage patients as partners.
The webinar will include a robust Q&A.
