Overview: Hispanic patients usually prefer to take care of their basic medical

needs in solo practitioners' offices and small medical centers. where they find the

respect and attention that large establishments deny them. Renowned experts of Quality

in Health care have been critical of the current design and implementation of

randomized clinical trials, the gold standard of clinical research, because they

believe that they often, but not always, presume a linear, mechanistic system when in

fact improvement in Health care takes place within complex adaptive systems that


They claim that care interventions must adapt to difficult contexts, which are often

at odds with the concept of improvement health care delivery as a fixed set of

activities, which can be studied through controlled clinical trials. We believe that

the design and implementation of modern clinical trials must take into account the

complexity and diversity of our patient populations and their different responses to

the continuity of care and monitoring techniques. Not only there is need for

evidence-based practice but also for "practice based evidence" that allow flexible

learning to obtain acceptable outcomes. In a continuous loop that starts in the first

stages of clinical research, goes through all the different stages of clinical trials,

continues in the clinical care settings and goes back to the minds that initially

proposed the studies, all the different actors and participants feed each other with

positive feedback info. The combined action of ignorance and prejudice can impair the

efficient recruitment and retaining of "different people" like Hispanics that have

long suffered sustained, mendacious discrimination in their access to basic health

care services for care and prevention of diseases.

The front desk staff is always the first responder to their particular needs, often

expressed in non-traditional forms of expression, and should be carefully trained to

avoid the most common pitfalls and misunderstandings. III The professionals-nurses,

technicians, physicians-in direct contact with these patients must anticipate the

emergency of some controversial issues and negative feedback that can, and will,

sabotage a continued participation. The constrictive corset of political correctness

in our society can discourage the honest discussion and remedy of critical issues such

as patient apathy, dishonesty, and more commonly a claimed ignorance of GPC

guidelines. Reacting to the longstanding critique that the clinical trials are skewed

to favour the participation of only certain segments of the population, the FDA has

enacted an "Action plan to enhance the Collection and Availability of Demographic

subgroup data" in order to prodd the inclusion of Minority patients in the design and

implementation of clinical research.

Why should you Attend: Based on our long experience of treating Hispanic and patients

in "New Life Medical Center", a Primary Care and Community Mental Health center in

Miami, Florida, we will discuss the more common obstacles found in the final pursuit

of good clinical outcomes for them. We will focus on the practical steps to assure an

effective and equitable approach for the health care needs of these patients and the

unbiased monitoring for compliance with internationally accepted regulations. As

health care practitioners and administrators that must respond quickly to a changing

health care arena, we will discuss case studies and enact role plays to illustrate the

most common problems and the needed solutions.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Distinguish the more common scenarios that jeopardize the proper recruitment and

participation of Hispanics

Illustrate with case studies the counterproductive arguments and enticements in the

approach to non-cooperative Hispanics

Describe the basic tenets of Competency CLAS guidelines in a changing and polymorphous

health care arena in our modern society
