TASK’s Community Engagement Team’s various activities ensure community participation in clinical research and ultimately assists in approved new drug regimens being widely known and adopted by those who need them.
We establish strategies to engage trial participants and their communities.
One of these strategies is to support Community Advisory Board (CAB) structures.
These structures create a bridge between researchers and the community.
This relationship creates opportunity for community input into trial implementation and by the Clinical Research Organization (CRO) having knowledge and understanding into community perceptions and concerns, they can address them in the research process and facilitate smoother implementation of clinical programs.
