Description:

The COVID-19 pandemic is only the latest prompt about the importance of international health and its broad influence upon social wellbeing. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for an informed and coordinated effort to achieve international healthcare equity. Leaders in international health must be conversant in its issues.

Reviews & Statements

In the chapter, “Improving Clinical Trial Diversity: The Impending Role of Technology-Oriented Strategies Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic” solutions are provided for improving clinical trial diversity during times of social distancing through adapting virtual methods for communicating and engaging with potential and current clinical trial participants.

The inspiration for this chapter was to provide recommendations for addressing disparities among historically underrepresented and underserved populations in clinical trial research. Suggestions include both a centralized and local perspective across a participant’s clinical trial journey – from awareness through continuous engagement following trial participation.

The recommendations outlined are both novel and practical at the same time, which may provide clinical research stakeholders with options for creating sustainable change to promote more inclusive trials.
