CCHE would like to share a recent publication by our Assistant Director Susan Passmore, PhD, and colleagues.
“Training Needs of Investigators and Research Team Members to Improve Inclusivity in Clinical and Translational Research Participation” is published in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science.
Despite increasing attention to the importance of diverse research participants, success across the translational research spectrum remains limited. To assess investigator and research team training needs, we conducted a web-based survey exploring barriers in knowledge and practice. Respondents (n=279) included those affiliated with the University of Wisconsin Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR). Although all respondents reported an abstract belief in the importance of diversity, factors associated with higher levels of best practices knowledge and implementation included: (1) use of federal funding; (2) having fewer years of experience; (3) recruiting healthy participants; and (4) having recruitment training.
