Cultural Competence in Research Symposium featuring the Bok Players, November 15, 2012

Registration Open: Cultural Competence in Research Symposium

Through interactive academic theater, a panel of clinical research, IRB, and subject advocacy experts and the experiences of audience, this event will generate a thoughtful and robust dialogue on the nuances of working with diverse communities in clinical and translational research. This free event will engage participants via the Bok Players an interactive theatre group serving academia who will facilitate an interactive discussion and Q&A session.

This is an interactive learning experience with the Bok Players which will explore complex issues such as:

  • engaging diverse communities in research, establishing trust across cultures
  • respecting the diversity of communities
  • obtaining consent from diverse populations
  • encouraging minority accrual in clinical research
  • dealing with unconscious personal bias and stereotyping.

Following each performance, the Bok Players will facilitate an interactive discussion and Q&A session. These discussions will be supplemented by a panel of experts representing human subject protection/research regulations (IRB Administrator-Sarah Harnish), research subject advocacy (Research Subject Advocacy Director, Dr. Enrico Cagliero), research nursing (Linda Godfrey-Bailey, Nurse Director of the BIDMC CRC), and the research subject experience (a past research subject).
