THE INCLUDE ETHNICITY FRAMEWORK

We wish to make you aware of INCLUDE, an initiative from the UK’s National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) that aims to improve trial delivery for under-served groups.

Trial teams need to do everything possible to make their trial relevant to the people for whom the results are intended to apply (often patients) and those expected to apply them (often healthcare professionals).  

The INCLUDE Ethnicity Framework aims to help trial teams think carefully about which ethnic groups should be included in their trial for its results to be widely applicable, and what challenges there may be to making this possible. Having identified potential challenges, the trial team can then consider ways to reduce those challenges. For this to work best, the Framework needs to be used at the trial design stage before funding is in place.
