TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- How to strategically plan and implement tactics to drive diversity in clinical research.

Many patient groups are underrepresented in clinical research, which impacts the ability to study the effectiveness of a treatment on people of different ages, races and ethnicities. Regulatory agencies are advising on more robust planning to improve clinical trial diversity and advancing health equity as outlined in the Food & Drug Omnibus Reform Act (FDORA) 29 Dec 2022 and referenced in the recent US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) guidance on decentralised clinical trials on 2 May.

This webinar will present and discuss strategies to proactively assess and implement diversity in clinical trial planning, partnering with sponsors and research sites to ensure the best outcomes. Experts from patient recruitment, site networks and in-home services discuss how a patient-centric approach will increase diversity while minimising burden, for patients and study teams alike.

Participants will learn the following during the webinar:

Outlining diversity goals:

    --  Defining target populations
    --  Conducting situational analysis
    --  Thinking beyond race & ethnicity

Identifying patient-centric enrolment barriers and operational challenges:

    --  Evaluating the protocol
    --  Conducting SWOT analysis through patient insights

Developing solutions that promote cultural sensitivity and minimise burden:

    --  Identifying the right sites in the right locations
    --  Building trust through educational tools, targeted campaigns and
        community outreach
    --  Proactively addressing patient burden via support, in-home services and
        travel program

Including recommendations in study plans and ensuring compliance:

    --  Setting expectations around operational delivery
    --  Training, monitoring and outlining triggers for contingency activation
    --  Case Studies: examples of how to drive diversity in a Phase III rare
        disease study, after study start and site selection

Join Ashmee Bharadia, Vice President, Accellacare In-Home Services; Susan Campbell, Senior Director, Patient Recruitment Services, ICON; and Tinaya Gray, Executive Director, Project Delivery, ICON, for the live webinar on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, at 12pm EDT (9am PDT).
