Improving Diversity and Representativeness of SWOG Cancer Research Network Clinical Trial Participants
The intent of the DEI Implementation Science Fellowship is to provide a motivated candidate with the opportunity to build or further their career within SWOG, and to lead a network-wide project with the potential to impact clinical trials and cancer care for patients everywhere.
Specifically, the fellowship aims to assist in the implementation of new systems, processes, and procedures to increase the diversity of SWOG trials. The system, unique to SWOG, is laid out in a new training program called TeamScience@SWOG: Improving Diversity and Representativeness of Clinical Trial Participants.
The implementation will be a partnership between the SWOG patient advocate and recruitment and retention committees, and give the fellow deep, direct experience in improving clinical trial accessibility, increasing diversity in cancer trial participants, and leading significant organizational change.
