Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 3 / Wednesday, January 6, 2016 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES The purpose of the public meeting is to report on FDA’s progress implementing the Action Plan, to discuss how stakeholders have been affected by these changes, and to solicit feedback and recommendations for further implementation from interested parties and stakeholders. Some questions we would like the public to comment on during the meeting include: 1. What approaches have been successful in addressing key barriers to recruiting diverse clinical trial populations? 2. What are your key limitations to conducting meaningful data analysis of underrepresented groups? 3. What have you learned about best practices for recruiting a broad representation of subjects for clinical trials? Which practices have been successful and why? Which have not and why? 4. What communication strategies have you successfully used that were also sensitive to the needs of underrepresented populations? 5. What are potential methods FDA should consider using to effectively communicate meaningful information on demographic analyses to a diverse public? 6. What are some of the actual or potential unintended consequences of data transparency you have encountered related to reporting demographic subgroup analysis? Stakeholders are invited to provide brief comments on these topics during the public comment portion of the meeting, but are not limited to discussing only the previous topics. Since the day-long meeting may not provide enough time to fully address all of these issues, we encourage interested groups to submit longer explanations and comments to the docket. II. Registration and Request for Oral Presentations FDA will try to accommodate all participant requests to speak; however, the duration of comments may be limited by time constraints.
