Milestone 12.K

ADRD Specific Milestone

Leverage ongoing initiatives on the science of inclusion to facilitate community engagement, understanding, recruitment, and long-term retention of populations experiencing AD/ADRD health disparities.

Success Criteria

  • Support research to develop new community-based strategies (e.g., specific language and outreach mechanisms/venues) to recruit, retain, and engage study participants from diverse populations, based the way each population understands and recognizes AD/ADRD.
  • Develop, disseminate and implement a national strategy for AD/ADRD clinical research to increase engagement and retention of diverse AD/ADRD patients and caregivers in clinical research. Refine this strategy on an iterative basis to reflect emerging best practices in participant engagement.
  • Track subject recruitment in clinical trials by gender, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geographic region, and other key features that inform the understanding of health disparities and outcomes across diverse populations.
