How to boost Hispanics' participation in clinical trials? Relate to them, Moffitt study shows
Date:6/26/2013

arketing intervention in this study was aimed at increasing clinical trial participation by Hispanic patients. However, the researchers found several examples of culturally based ideas that may have kept patients from enrolling in a clinical trial. For example, there was confusion among Hispanic patients over why a doctor would ask them to make a treatment decision, such as participating in a clinical trial. The prevailing cultural idea, they found, was that Hispanic patients had a core belief that the doctor will tell them what to do. Also in Hispanic culture, the patient relies on his or her family to help make health care decisions.

Their research shows a need to present culturally tailored information for specific audiences. The researchers are using the Spanish video and booklet in a randomized clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness in improving the clinical trials perceptions of Spanish-speaking cancer patients.

"We feel the educational materials we developed will empower Hispanic patients by improving their capacity to make health care decisions, such as enrolling in a clinical trial," explained Quinn. "They may say no, but they will be prepared with knowledge about the purpose of clinical trials and will not be making an uninformed decision."
