ORWH recently launched a revised NIH Inclusion Outreach Toolkit to help researchers recruit and retain women participants in their clinical studies. Inclusion of diverse study populations is integral to the missions of ORWH, NIH, and the entire biomedical research enterprise. Inclusion ensures that the distribution of study participants by sex, gender, race, ethnicity, and age reflects the population needed to accomplish the scientific goals of the clinical study.
The new version of the NIH Inclusion Outreach Toolkit includes information on the history of inclusion at NIH, current policies, case studies and testimonials, regulations, checklists, seminars, and other resources. This information will help Principal Investigators and their research teams to fulfill their responsibilities for including women in clinical research.
