Experience of Diverse Patients and Families in Clinical Trials
Too often diverse populations are underrepresented in clinical trials or are not represented in that stage of research. Many diverse populations experience challenges related to awareness, access, technology, or transportation when participating in a clinical trial. In this session, a diverse panel of patients and caregivers will discuss, from their perspectives and experiences, the challenges that they have faced navigating their care. The goal of this session is to create a safe space for courageous conversations where healthcare providers and researchers can learn from patients to understand their lived experiences and identify ways to adapt the system to lessen the burden on others in the future.
