OCTRU Workshop: Applying the INCLUDE guidance to your trial - ensuring diversity and reach for all in trials
Tuesday, 17 May 2022, 10am to 12.30pm
To be held in the Botnar Research Centre - G54
Research shows that participants in trials often don’t reflect the populations in which treatments are needed or will be used. Who takes part in trials matters because it affects how widely applicable the research findings are. When participants in trials don’t match the populations in which treatments will be used, it can lead to problems like treatment benefits and harms that we see in trials not translating to real world patients, or could lead to the research missing important findings that are specific to different populations. The INCLUDE guidance, funded by NIHR, aims to help improve the inclusion of under-served groups in health research.
This workshop will cover:
· Why is it important to INCLUDE under-served groups in trials?
· What is an under-served group?
· Examples of under-served groups
· Barriers to inclusion in trials
· Practical ways of reducing barriers to inclusion in trials (small group exercise)
