Want to learn more about clinical trials outreach for Latinos?
We created the Clinical Trials Outreach for Latinos (CTOL) Program Replication Manual to give you tips, resources, and other help to incorporate these activities in your organization.
The manual can help you:
- Learn about clinical trials and the need for outreach to minorities;
- Start clinical trials outreach activities in your organization;
- Adapt outreach materials to your organizational needs; and
- Increase the number of Latinos who participate in clinical trials and biospecimen donation in your community!
Manual adaptable templates and materials:
The CTOL program and manual was developed by the Institute for Health Promotion Research (IHPR) at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio through two projects funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Those projects are Redes En Acción: The National Latino Cancer Research Network and the Region 4 Transdisciplinary Geographic Management Program (GMaP) program, which is building a synergistic network of investigators in basic, clinical, population- and community-based research to eliminate cancer health disparities.
