Innovative Development of Research Engagement Manual (I-DREM): Strategies to Enhance Recruitment and Retention of Black Individuals in CTN-0109 CURB-2

Under-representation of ethnic minorities in clinical trials has significant scientific implications and ultimately compromises generalizability of research findings and further exacerbates existing racial health disparities. The overall goal of this project is to pilot the Innovative Development of Research Engagement Manual (I-DREM) that maps out sustainable solutions that would benefit the recruitment of Black individuals into SUD clinical trials and move the meter towards making diversity in clinical trials a standard part of the SUD clinical research model.
