Duration: 1 hour
Description: Research participants are often not representative of the diversity you see in society or the community most at risk of being affected by a condition. The NIHR has established the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Programme Board and commissioned projects like NIHR INCLUDE to address this problem and identify recommendations to improve representation in participation.
Improving diversity in research participation is relevant across all research fields and is essential if we are to improve research, and ensure it is fit for purpose.
The NIHR School for Public Health Research (SPHR) & NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR) are hosting a joint webinar exploring how we can improve diversity in research. Attendees will gain further insights in developments on equality and diversity within the NIHR, listen to case studies and have the opportunity to ask questions.
