Tools for Enhancing the Informed Consent Process and Participation of Underrepresented Groups in Research

Strengthening translational Research in Diverse Enrollment

The STRIDE approach focuses on enhancing the informed consent process through selection and combination of innovative intervention components based on a study’s goals and institutional resources.

STRIDE Components:

Simulation-based training to enhance research assistants’ cultural sensitivity and ability to engage participants in the eConsent process

Electronic consent (eConsent) platform to generate an interactive and engaging informed consent experience

“Storytelling” about the research process to enhance comprehension and cultural relevance of the informed consent and research in general
