Reaching people from migrant and refugee communities for clinical trials

Victoria Koutsoubos

People from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds are significantly under-represented in Australian clinical trials.

Language and translation difficulties, cultural beliefs about health, medicine and research, and a lack of existing relationships between health and medical researchers and CALD communities, are some of the barriers to enrolling more CALD people in potentially life-saving trials.

Overcoming these challenges is possible.

Monash Partners was pleased to partner with Sydney Health Partners for this session.
