2021 Avoca Industry Report: Diversity in Clinical Research
Each year, WCG Avoca surveys industry professionals to understand trends in clinical development, with a particular focus on outsourcing dynamics and relationships between research Sponsors and Providers. This report summarizes key findings with respect to outsourcing trends and key relationship indicators, including analysis of the influence of specific performance attributes on levels of satisfaction.
The events of the last two years have created an urgent and nonnegotiable imperative to increase diversity in clinical research: diversity in how such studies are executed and in the types of patients recruited. Moving forward, the industry must contend with fully building diversity into the clinical operations culture; deciding how much executional diversity to maintain and supporting sites in its maintenance; and determining how we can sustainably maintain diversity in the patients involved in clinical research. The 2021 WCG Avoca Industry Survey explored these questions by requesting respondents’ candid views regarding the relative priority and drivers of patient diversity in clinical research participation, as well as with their experiences with diversity in clinical research execution.
