International Clinical Trials

Helping Hands

To be able to discuss how site nursing support benefits
the clinical trial industry and home care in particular, the
ongoing obstacles need to be understood. Clinical trial sites
face many challenges, such as engaging minority groups
efficiently and quickly identifying patients, while coping
with increased work load due to the small pool of available
research locations.

Equal Representation

One barrier that continues to impact clinical trials is the
enrolment of ethnic minority groups. These classes remain
underrepresented in treatment experiments that could
save their lives. However, some diseases are more prevalent
in different racial and ethnic groups – African Americans
are approximately 70% more likely to be diagnosed with
diabetes, for example (1). Therefore, to produce a drug
that will best treat these patients they must be included
in clinical trials.

This remains an obstacle for several reasons: a lack of
minority principal investigators (PI), a lack of awareness
of clinical trials among these groups or patients living too
far from an enrolling location.
