Summary of "Beyond clinical trials: social outcomes of structured stakeholder engagement in biomedical HIV prevention trials in China."

Stakeholder engagement is increasingly recognised and institutionalised as an essential component of HIV-related biomedical research. However, we know little about stakeholder engagement's social outcomes, such as its influence on the community it engages with, in authoritarian regimes and beyond high-income countries. This study evaluates a multi-site structured stakeholder engagement programme conducted in parallel with two HIV prevention studies among men who have sex with men in China. We conducted a one-month ethnographic study and 41 semi-structured interviews with participants of a structured stakeholder engagement programme in six Chinese cities. We found that the structured stakeholder engagement programme offered community stakeholders additional and flexible funding, networking opportunities, increased clinical research literacy, and strengthened their connections with the community. However, the structured stakeholder programme generated unintended consequences in some cases. It caused community stakeholders to expend their social capital, introduced moral conflicts and created tension between stakeholders' 'community representative' and 'research assistant' identities. Our findings suggest that despite these unintended consequences, structured stakeholder engagement could effectively mitigate negative outcomes generated by such engagement if such programmes are more sensitive and responsive to the broader socio-political structure in which trials are embedded.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Works about randomized clinical trials that compare interventions in clinical settings and which look at a range of effectiveness outcomes and impacts.

Works about a study where participants are assigned to a treatment, procedure, or intervention by methods that are not random. Non-randomized clinical trials are sometimes referred to as quasi-experimental clinical trials or non-equivalent control group designs.

Work that is the report of a pre-planned clinical study of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques in humans selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. While most clinical trials concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans. Specific headings for specific types and phases of clinical trials are also available.

Earlier than planned termination of clinical trials.

Pre-planned studies of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule (if appropriate) of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. This concept includes clinical trials conducted both in the U.S. and in other countries.
