In clinical research, we often ask: why don’t they trust us? This puts the burden on the patient/participant. Instead, the question is: how are we trustworthy?  Together we will explore this question.

PCORnet is hosting a dynamic workshop to begin a critical dialogue about ethics, trust, and engagement, not just for PCORnet, but clinical research overall. Presenters will catalyze a broad dialogue about these issues by listening deeply to communities (the experts in this topic) and examining examples from inside and outside of health. The sessions will foster meaningful discussion through provocative, brief presentations, and the participants will have the major role. Click here to review the agenda.
