Description & Coverage
Description:

With everything going on today in the media, having the diversity of our population in healthcare is more important than ever. However, it’s not currently happening. In the United States, there is not equality in healthcare when it comes to gender, race, or age. For example, the majority of individuals who enroll in clinical trials are white male individuals. Shocking it might sound but a harsh reality we have to face. There are many reasons why this imbalance occur, and unfortunately, it also leads to risks. There is lack of diversity in research, scientific committees, and commercial related activities to name a few. Moreover, there is no strategic approach to ensure diversity in healthcare.

The objective of this book is to bring awareness to the issue and risks associated with it, along with providing ways to mitigate the gaps. This comprehensive book helps educate leaders while also providing them with potential solutions that they can adapt to their own organizations. This book makes an impact on the field by bringing forth a problem that has been occurring for years now yet without progress or significant change, and helps leaders make changes within their own areas of responsibility and expertise.
