RCGP GP Frontline: Representation in clinical trials – a visionary approach

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic's unprecedented challenges, the Centre for Research Equity at the University of Oxford spearheaded two groundbreaking national clinical trials, PRINCIPLE and PANORAMIC, to combat the virus's devastating effects. These trials, aimed at identifying effective treatments to reduce hospitalizations and alleviate the NHS's burden, embarked on an innovative recruitment strategy. Focused on inclusivity, they reached out to historically underrepresented communities, ensuring a diverse participant base. This effort not only led to the PANORAMIC trial becoming the world's largest and fastest-recruiting primary care trial but also set a new standard for engaging with diverse populations, proving the power of community collaboration in scientific research.
