Equity by Design in Clinical Research: Cancer trials – Module 2 Community Engagement and Representation
4:30 PM ET to 6:00 PM ET
EQUITY BY DESIGN IN CLINICAL RESEARCH: CANCER TRIALS is a virtual training course communicating an understanding of, and training on best practices for, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) of underrepresented populations in clinical trials. The course is intended to aid cancer centers in improving their ability to enroll underrepresented participants in clinical research and to develop mechanisms for ongoing sustainability of DEI in clinical research. Ethical and regulatory considerations will be included, and practical guidance for commitment, communication, partnership, and conduct will be emphasized. CME credit available.
MODULE 2: COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND REPRESENTATION
Community Engagement and Representation will focus upon the importance of open, respectful, and clear communication throughout the community engagement and trial process; practical strategies for implementing and sustaining community and stakeholder engagement; and consideration for the complexity of data that needs to be interoperable, appropriately defined, and representative of diverse communities.
Hosted by The Multi-Regional Clinical Trials Center of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard, The Center for Cancer Equity and Engagement at Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center, and Mass General Brigham.
