Advancing Justice and Equity in Pragmatic Clinical Trials
Joseph Ali, JD
Seminar date: 9/12/2023
Description: Pragmatic clinical trials (PCTs) can help bring evidence-based therapies to people living with pain and co-occurring conditions, with an emphasis on developing insights that are relevant to patients, practitioners and others. However, in order to reach their potential within a diverse society, pain PCTs must thoughtfully consider how patient vulnerabilities and experiences of injustice and inequity might affect trial design and implementation. Drawing from the experiences and insights of the NIH-DOD-VA Pain Management Collaboratory, this seminar will situate the concepts of justice and equity within a pain PCT context, identifying challenges and offering strategies to potentially enhance the value of such trials for various key populations.
Target audience: The seminar may be of interest to pain clinical trialists and individuals involved in ethics and/or regulatory oversight of research.
