The importance of recruiting diverse patient populations in clinical trials has been highlighted in recent years by regulators, sponsors and sites alike. In response, SCRS developed the Diversity Awareness Program through which several tools were developed:
- Two research papers, one outlining the importance of patient diversity awareness, and the other summarizing the results of a survey which identifies factors that drive site success in recruiting diverse patient populations;
- An Assessment Tool that provides guidance for sites to improve their ability to recruit diverse patient populations.
Access these tools to improve your site’s recruitment of diverse patients in clinical trials:
What is the DSAT and how does it work?
Watch this short video to learn more about the assessment tool and what you can expect when your site participates.
