Boosting participation in clinical trials

Leading researchers and policy experts from across the country will come together June 27 and June 28 at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York to examine the issue of declining enrollment in clinical trials. The two-day workshop is co-sponsored by Mount Sinai’s Institute of Translational Sciences through the Department of Health Evidence and Policy and the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies.

Meeting Objectives:

  • Define and discuss the problem of inadequate public engagement in clinical trials.
  • Identify the structures and culture of health care systems and delivery organizations that fail to support or engage with the clinical trial enterprise and suggest potential solutions for how health centers can be engaged to support the clinical trial enterprise.
  • Discuss how academic medical centers can create successful community partnerships to improve public engagement in clinical trials.
  • Highlight and discuss models/methods, both proven and yet to be tried, of public engagement. Address the media’s role in public engagement.
  • Describe novel clinical trial designs (such as adaptive clinical trial designs) that minimize enrollment needs and address treatment assignment concerns of physicians and their patients.
  • Involve stakeholders in a discussion of moving forward to create a comprehensive strategy for enhanced public engagement in clinical trials.
