Abstract

The inclusion of diverse populations in clinical trial research is a social justice imperative. Creating the communicative tools that can support cancer patients across varied cultural backgrounds in processing complex clinical trial information, to achieve informed consent, has been a challenge. This study sought to evaluate specific clinical trial multimedia—a website, four animations, and a decision aid—to meet the decision-making and informational needs of Hispanic patients. The multimedia content was positively evaluated by Hispanic cancer patients. However, the discussions also yielded important steps for culturally adapting these tools to account for particular informational needs and cultural values that would be important to incorporate into these, and future, clinical trial multimedia interventions that target Hispanic populations.
