Health Equity Core Offers Guidelines for Inclusive Language in Practical Trials on March 28, 2024

Dr. Rosa Gonzalez-Guarda, cochair of the Health Equity Core at the NIH Pragmatic Trials Collaboratory, has developed a valuable resource for researchers working towards promoting health equity. The Equitable Language Cheat Sheet offers guidance on using inclusive language when referring to specific individuals, groups, and communities. As an associate professor and assistant dean at the Duke University School of Nursing, Dr. Gonzalez-Guarda emphasizes the importance of respecting personal preferences when collaborating with communities in research settings.

The cheat sheet is available on the Health Equity Core webpage and will be regularly updated to reflect changes in terminology and best practices. The document includes preferred terminology for various identities, such as age, race and ethnicity, gender, differing abilities, substance abuse, underserved populations, and partners of focus. The Health Equity Core aims to help pragmatic trials incorporate a health equity lens in their research by identifying barriers to this integration and developing strategies and tools to advance health equity. This living document aligns with the Core’s mission of overcoming biases and promoting health equity within pragmatic research.
