Survey to Understand the Barriers to Including People with Disabilities in Clinical Trials

February 15, 2023

The Indiana Institute on Disability and Community (IIDC) at Indiana University is partnering with Disability Solutions and Bristol Myers Squibb to develop a deeper understanding of the barriers to including people with disabilities in clinical trials with a goal of ultimately reducing and eliminating those barriers.

Are you a person with a disability who has participated (or attempted to participate) in a clinical trial? If so, we want to hear from you. And we believe 10 minutes of your time can help change the healthcare landscape for our community. You can learn more below or launch the survey and tell us about your experience, confidentially.

Disability Solutions is thrilled to be leading the work on a groundbreaking project, Disability Diversity in Clinical Trials (DDiCT) ( DDiCT is the first of its kind -- a project seeking to understand the experience of people with disabilities participating in clinical trials.

In the current phase of this project, Disability Solutions has created a survey to investigate systemic and structural barriers that may make it hard for people with disabilities to participate in clinical research. We hope to have your support by sharing this survey with your colleagues, friends, and family.

Our goal is to gather data and insights that will help us develop strategies that will enable more people with disabilities to participate in potentially lifesaving investigational research. Interested in learning more? Contact [email protected].
