Patients, Providers, & Public: Faster Together-May 17

This webinar will discuss methods used to engage older adults in research. Whether research is conducted targeting groups with overt physical and mental challenges, or targeting relatively more independent adults with few physical or mental complications, the challenge of connecting with the community itself is of high importance. Strategies for success based on lessons learned from multiple research experiences with older adults will be discussed. Faster together is a supplemental project to the Recruitment Innovation Center (funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Science). This project aims at developing innovative strategies to enhance minority recruitment in clinical trials.
