A non-profit that aims to educate and inform about research studies in the United States has begun a new initiative called “Speak Out, But Speak Smart.”
The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation launched a website for the program this week. It uses interactive video to educate study participants about the influence of word-of-mouth communications – good and bad – on research studies.
Here is the new site’s premise:
The site also includes a short glossary of terms, links to more educational materials and information on the research process.
The center was founded in 2003. Its mission, as defined at its website, is to educate and inform “the public, patients, medical/research communities, the media, and policy makers about clinical research participation and the role that each party plays as a participant in the process.”
The CISCRP website includes extensive information for anyone considering participating in a research study, as well as research professionals.
