Study: Improving access to cancer clinical trials for Arabic-speaking Australians

Are you a healthcare professional working with Australian Arabic-speaking people with cancer?

We need your insights to help us understand the needs of Australian Arabic-speaking people and their interest in participating in cancer clinical trials.

We are launching a study called Healthcare professionals’ perspectives on the barriers and enablers of cancer clinical trial participation in the Australian Arabic-speaking community.

Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities are significantly under-represented in clinical research. This makes it difficult to understand the effectiveness of new and potentially life-saving treatments in these communities.

At Cancer Symptoms Trials (CST), our goal is to increase the participation of CALD community members in cancer clinical trials with a view to improving health outcomes for all Australians.

We know that Arabic-speaking Australians make up a significant part of our community, with Arabic being the third most-spoken language in Australia. That is why the Australian Arabic-speaking community is a priority focus for us

If you are a healthcare professional (clinical specialist, general practitioner, nurse, Allied health professional, medical interpreter or researcher) working with adults with cancer from the Arabic-speaking community in Australia, we’d love to hear from you. You can register for the study here: https://events.humanitix.com/copy-of-cancer-clinical-trial-participation-in-the-australian-arabic-speaking-community.

For further information about the study please go to https://bit.ly/3Yz48t3.

If you have any queries, please email CST@uts.edu.au.

The survey will be open until 15th April 2023

CST is a research collaborative within the Improving Palliative, Aged and Chronic Care through Research and Translation (IMPACCT) research centre at the University of Technology Sydney.
