Approaches to selecting sites capable of enrolling under-represented participants in clinical trials.
These topics were explored in the Patient Diversity Community of Practice Group virtual meetings on August 12 and September 9, 2021. The group developed a draft list of attributes and brainstormed about how to measure / assess site capabilities. The site attribute list was shared in a joint meeting with the Site Selection and Start-Up Process Metric Development Work Group to gain insights about today’s approaches to selecting sites capable of enrolling under-represented participants in clinical trials. At the end of the discussion, it was decided that there was interest in continuing exploration of the topic in 2022 in a metric development work group.
Consortium members are invited to join to us on February 16th for the inaugural meeting of the AQC Patient Diversity Metric Development Work Group. During the meeting, discussion leaders will provide a summary overview of the work completed in by the Community of Practice Group in 2021 which will serve as the foundation for the new metric development work group in 2022. Specifically, we will:
- Review & brainstorm on the attributes that are important to assess sites
- Discuss what site data is collected today
- Explore how to obtain the missing data – site survey and then an analysis tool?
Consortium members are invited to log into the AQC Knowledge Center meeting calendar to register for meetings.
