Several studies have reported lower rates of clinical trial awareness among ethnic and racial minorities (such as Blacks and Hispanics) compared to Whites. Awareness barriers include lack of education regarding clinical trials, lack of culturally appropriate information, cancer knowledge, and physician awareness of trials.
This training course provides an opportunity to explore methods to improve clinical trial awareness among racial and ethnic minority populations. Strategies and resources to improve awareness will be presented along with opportunities for input/feedback regarding these methods and resources. Potential issues related to implementation of strategies will be reviewed. Hands-on experience related to implementation through sharing of implementation experiences is encouraged.
