Sheffield Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) is a Trial Forge Inclusive Research Centre (https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/ctru). Sheffield CTRU is a UKCRC- registered clinical trials unit that provides advice and practical support to investigators planning or running clinical trials. Many of our projects are run in collaboration with the Sheffield Centre for Health and Related Research.
Our Trial Forge Inclusive Research Centre aims to increase evidence base for methodological approaches to increase inclusivity in trials therefore improving trial decision making, relevance and generalisability. Trial Forge has published some practical guidance on how to recruit and retain ethnic minority groups in trials.
If you are planning a trial, please consider embedding inclusive approaches to reach and recruit people from diverse backgrounds to your study. This includes accounting for intersectionality within your trial.
