Abstract:

How do we actually go about creating more equitable clinical trials? Join us for a discussion about how changing the way we operate and plan can lead to clinical trials that accurately represent our entire community. To succeed at this goal, we must ask ourselves: how do we go about overcoming the myth that inclusive/diverse trials can only be achieved through a quota system – and that the pursuit of more equitable trials subverts timelines? The second session in our four-part series, this active panel discussion with clinical operations leaders from throughout the biopharma industry will discuss how to achieve “a new normal,” with practical day-to-day solutions designed to drive adoption of patient diversity in clinical trials. ​
