Diversity in Clinical Trials

We can work with you to encourage greater patient diversity and remove barriers to participation

Protocol Design

Patient Advocacy Group (PAG) Engagement

Working with community focus groups and PAGs to gather and share insights into protocol design elements and the recruitment tactics/tools used on the program.

This includes:

  • Scoping PAGs with existing patient networks to lead focus groups
  • Developing a recommendations report for study teams
  • Creating a sponsor response to the recommendations report for dissemination to the PAG
  • Relaying findings, outcomes and actions to future sites

Communications & Training Solutions

Training – Impact Through Upskilling

Providing study sites with advanced recruitment and engagement skills through specific education and interactive training programs. We do this through webinars, videos, remote coaching, investigator meetings and on-site training.

Communications – DICT Toolkit

Using culturally appropriate patient recruitment materials to increase awareness, education and access to clinical trials for all BAME populations.

We can design a bespoke, branded template toolkit for each CRO or Sponsor to use however they need, ensuring that materials are produced appropriately for specific BAME communities.

Let us show you how we have improved diversity for our clients

Site Resources

Community Outreach in Action

Working locally within communities and with community physicians to increase clinical trial awareness and engagement among those from BAME groups.

Our grassroots ‘boots on the ground’ approach means we are able to build relationships and trust with key community stakeholders. For example, we have visited churches, grocery stores, hair salons and gyms in order to reach specific populations and talk to them about clinical research. It’s an approach we are currently implementing with  The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, one of the worlds leading specialist hospitals in the UK, to make cancer clinical trials more accessible.

Are you looking to make your clinical studies more inclusive?

Diverse Patient Voice

Stakeholder Insights – DICT Survey

Elevating the voice of the community, to include previous clinical trial participants, sites and patients now so that we can improve the participant experience in the future. Our insight surveys consider:

  • Patient insights and research attitudes
  • Site insights and recruitment needs
  • Participant insights and experience
