Given the recent statistics showing that COVID-19 disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minority communities, the recruitment and enrollment of diverse populations are crucial. In a webinar from Thurs., June 18, “Engaging Racial and Ethnic Minority Patient Populations in COVID-19 Clinical Trials,” CTTI discussed the barriers to enrolling a diverse patient population and key strategies to overcome them. The presentation and full slide deck are now available here.
The webinar covers useful insights and best practices gathered from key stakeholders across the clinical trials ecosystem, including investigators, sponsors, participants, and many others.
Several CTTI efforts are underway—including conducting surveys, holding webinars, and developing resources to help the clinical trials ecosystem adapt and move forward during this pandemic.
