Increasing Trial Diversity: Illuminating a New Path to Equitable and Inclusive Clinical Research, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
TORONTO, Ontario, Jan. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- What is the full meaning of patient diversity in clinical trials? The lack of equity and representation of minority groups in biomedical research has been an open concern for many years, despite regulatory and private-sector initiatives to change this. Now there is reason to hope for significant change, spurred by heightened awareness of racial discrimination in US healthcare and COVID-19's disproportionate toll on disadvantaged communities.
But how can clinical researchers strike the correct balance of scientific and ethical imperatives as they capitalize on this opportunity? Is it possible to secure a commitment from internal and external stakeholders? What form should that commitment take? In this panel-led discussion — the first in a series of four — Syneos Health, the only fully integrated biopharmaceutical solutions organization, will interrogate how 12 months of global pandemic might illuminate a new path to equitable and inclusive clinical research.
This four-part webinar series will identify obstacles that have to-date, and continue to, stifle appropriate patient diversity in clinical trials; unpack the organizational overhaul needed to effect change; share case studies where sponsors, patients and investigators have come together to overcome hurdles; and explore how policy innovations that might include government-led mandates and incentives can move the industry forward as one.
Join the expert speakers Stephen Keith, MD, MSPH, Medical Director, Syneos Health and Fabian Sandoval, MD, CEO & Research Director, Emerson Clinical Research Institute in a live webinar on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at 12pm EST.
