MRCT Center Leaning In webinar: Community Awareness, Access, Knowledge


Presented on: October 14, 2020, 11:00 AM.-12 noon. ET.

Presented at: MRCT Center Leaning In Webinar Series

Discussion Topic: Participants in clinical research should reflect the population affected by the disease, or those intended to utilize the intervention. Early and active engagement from participants, patients, caregivers, and communities can influence and improve the design and execution of clinical research, including efforts to enhance diversity and inclusion. Further, appropriate and meaningful engagement offers opportunities for outreach to individuals and communities including those underrepresented or underserved in research, addresses priorities that are important for patients and potential participants, and to draws upon the perspectives of the very individuals for whom the research is intended.
