Achieving Clinical Trial Diversity Through Actionable Steps
The medical community and cultural opinion agree: clinical trials need diversity. It’s our job to serve affected populations, but we cannot do that if we don’t have an appropriate representation of these populations in our research. Minorities are often more at risk for the disease yet are egregiously underrepresented in clinical trials. Understanding why and how minority populations are underrepresented can lead us to define actionable steps that organizations of all sizes can take to help solve the problem.
Scott continues to elaborate on actionable ways to improve trial diversity and the increased responsibility we as an industry have to make diversity a priority in the June issue of Pharmaceutical Outsourcing.
