A challenge in clinical research is obtaining the diverse patient voice to describe experiences that impact clinical trial knowledge, understanding and participation.

Minorities are disproportionately impacted by cancer, chronic and certain infectious diseases.

African‐Americans make up 12% of the population, but only 5% of clinical trial participants and Hispanics make up 16% of the population but only 1% of clinical trial participants.

Understanding- from the patient’s perspective-reasons for this recruitment challenge can benefit any healthcare related product manufacturer or healthcare organization.

Learning from Patients

Inspire recently conducted Virtual Interviews with patients and caregivers who reflect the ethnic diversity of the US. Through these interviews, we identified factors impacting patient clinical trial decision-making. This webinar is based on this recent Virtual Patient Interviews research project.
