The stakeholder teleconference meeting will enable the NIH to gather perspectives from interested parties on issues related to the clinical trial recruitment and retention that could be explored in the workshop. For the purposes of planning the workshop agenda, the NIH is particularly interested in the perspectives of public foundations and other organizations currently working in this area. The topics that are to be explored in the workshop include the following: Outside coordination with NIH-supported clinical trials and public foundations; models to identify and support trial participants; potential public-private partnerships; methods to increase participation, including underrepresented and uninsured populations; and potential measures to track and monitor participation in NIH-supported clinical trials.
