Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in Clinical Trials

3CTN developed the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Framework and Toolkit to support sites, clinical research staff, sponsors, and funders in accessing information and resources focused on improving and sustaining equitable and inclusive best practices for underrepresented populations in clinical trials.

The EDI Framework recommendations were developed to help members identify meaningful opportunities in their efforts to improve equitable access to, and involvement in clinical trials among underrepresented populations and enhance the diversity and inclusiveness of Canada’s clinical research community. The Toolkit was designed to allow users to identify available resources, templates, and guidelines associated with each set of recommendations in order to implement best practices that are most relevant for overcoming local challenges.
