COVID-19 and the effort to develop treatments and vaccines for COVID-19 have brought awareness of clinical trials into the public view like never before. What impact is that discussion having on the public’s understanding of clinical trials as part of the drug development process? In addition, there’s been extensive conversation about ensuring COVID-19 treatment studies include an appropriately representative population. How can we advance this important discussion to achieve diversity in research study enrollment?
In this webinar we:
- Review a recent CISCRP survey examining how COVID-19 has affected awareness, perceptions and understanding of clinical research for the general public
- Discuss how future understanding of and participation in clinical research may be affected by the pandemic
- Review the disproportionate impact that COVID-19 is having on minority communities in the U.S. and discuss the need to ensure appropriate representation in COVID-19 clinical trials
