March 22, 2022 @ 4:30 pm 6:00 pm

Virtual Event

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.


Study Planning and Communications will describe how to optimize the study question, design, and communications for diversity, equity, and inclusion in cancer clinical research. The impact of study design, eligibility criteria, feasibility assessment, site selection, decentralization of trials, and health literate and linguistically appropriate communications on recruitment and retention of underrepresented populations will be discussed.
