Program Description
Medical devices can affect men and women differently, yet enrolling enough women in clinical trials to adequately assess these differences continues to be a big hurdle for researchers. The problem is especially apparent in cardiovascular studies. This session will discuss the importance of women representation in clinical trials, compare current female enrollment in major cardiovascular trials to disease prevalence, examine potential barriers to enrollment, and explore opportunities on how to improve trial participation for women.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify reasons why adequate/separate study of women in cardiovascular clinical trials is important.
  • Describe current status of female enrollment in ma-jor cardiovascular clinical trials compared to dis-ease prevalence.
  • Categorize potential barriers to enrollment in cardi-ovascular clinical trials based on gender.
  • Explain key motivators for women to consider par-ticipating in clinical trials.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of key factors that may en-hance physician knowledge, and patient participa-tion in cardiovascular clinical trials.
