For the Benefit of All: Optimizing Cancer Clinical Trials by Enrolling Diverse Participants
You put so much into staging a high-integrity cancer clinical trial.
But if diverse participants don’t enroll or stay in that trial, the validity of results — and the promise of treatment — are in question.
“For the Benefit of All” is a one and a half-day seminar that gives you new strategies and tools to enroll more patients from under-represented populations in your cancer trials.
We’ll explore how to:
- design your cancer clinical trial to serve people of different races, ethnicities, places of residence and socio-economic statuses;
- communicate details of the trial so that all audiences understand how it works – and how it might benefit them; and
- eliminate barriers that keep historically underrepresented groups from enrolling or staying in the trial.
Tailored to clinical trial managers, cancer researchers, physicians and research teams, “For the Benefit of All” builds on the dialogue held at the 2022 summit “Addressing Disparities in Cancer Clinical Trials.”
