Spotlight on Women's Health

How Exclusion of Women and African-Americans Undermines the Value of Treatment Research


by Keith Humphreys, PhD
Seminar date: 12/10/2015

Description: This presentation examines the disparity between who is enrolled in psychiatric research versus who accesses psychiatric care in the real world. Particularly, it will examine whether study exclusion criteria affect the representation of women and African-Americans in samples and also whether they change the outcomes a study of treatment finds. Intended audience: anyone who conducts, consumes, or applies mental health research or is interested in broader questions of how and whether science can be translated into practice in any field of medicine.
