Clinical Trial Patient Engagement Training
Training to Improve Participation from Underrepresented Racial and Ethnic Populations in Clinical Trials
knowRX Health is addressing the needs of clinical researchers by offering on-demand, web-based diversity training specifically designed to address Cultural Considerations for the Conduct of Clinical Research for those individuals involved in engaging patients in clinical trial participation. Our "I Support Research, For You" campaign begins with training which includes expert perspectives from multiple cultures currently underrepresented in clinical research, offers participants actionable insights that are critical for achieving success in diverse recruitment and retention for clinical trials.
FDORA, which stands for Food and Drug Omnibus Reform Act," is a law passed by the Congress of the United States in 2022. It includes several elements that seek to correct a lack of racial and ethnic diversity in clinical trials. The FDA has responsibility for regulating the enforcement of this new law. The FDA recognizes the importance of diverse representation in clinical research to ensure that medical products are safe and effective for all populations.
As part of the FDA's efforts to enhance diversity in clinical trials, the agency has emphasized the need for training and education of principal investigators and clinical trial staff. This training is crucial to equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively engage diverse communities and promote inclusivity in clinical research. By addressing barriers and increasing diversity in clinical trials, the FDA aims to improve the generalizability of trial results and ensure that medical products are safe and effective for all populations requiring their use.
The impact of clinical trial training for principal investigators and staff can be significant in several ways:
In cooperation with and endorsed by the National Medical Association (NMA), the W. Montague Cobb Institute, and the Alliance of Multicultural Physicians (AMP) which include the Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP), the National Council of Asian Pacific Islander Physicians (NCAPIP), and the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) this training is available for your Principal Investigator and Site Staff conducting clinical trials.
A percentage of proceeds from this training will benefit local community groups as represented within this training program to advance health literacy. Speak with one of our collaborations partners or sign up directly on this page.
