The Trial of the Future: Fostering Diversity and Inclusion in Research (RR)
Diversity in clinical research has become a key focus area throughout the industry. In addition to the need to build a more inclusive environment, diversity among participants is vital to ensuring the development of effective treatments. In this session, we’ll explore current efforts and best practices for fostering diversity within clinical trials and provide guidance to promote diverse recruitment across your organizations. We’ll focus on actionable steps you can take to improve recruitment and highlight how the shift to virtual and decentralized trials is the perfect time to focus on inclusive recruitment initiatives.

Partnering with Clinical Research Sites to Improve the Patient Experience in Clinical Trials
The purpose of the workshop is to explore strategies for sponsors to partner with sites to improve the patient experience in clinical trials using digital technology (apps, web platforms, clinical trial patient portals, etc.). Learnings from the workshop will enable the discovery of a balanced approach to enhance the patient experience between sponsor-driven technology and site-driven technology. These learnings will guide the design of technology platforms that patients find valuable and which compliment (and not interfere with) the technology currently in use by sites.
