Despite making up a large proportion of clinical populations, older adults continue to be underrepresented in clinical research. The 5Ts Framework helps research teams identify the appropriate target population and avoid exclusions, build teams with aging expertise, anticipate additional time and resources needed, follow practical tips for accommodating age-related limitations, and use tools that measure outcomes important to older adults. The 5Ts website builds on this framework by providing practical advice for designing and conducting inclusive research studies. Research teams can search for timely and helpful recommendations that are relevant to their study, download resources for their study team to use, or contact us to receive 5Ts updates and news.
