CISCRP Delivers Global Assessment of Patient Perceptions of Clinical Research

  • January 16, 2018

  • Annick Anderson, Director of Research Service at the Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP), will detail the 2017 Perceptions & Insights study findings during a presentation at the 2nd annual Patients as Partners EU conference. The presentation, “Global Assessment of Patient Perceptions of Clinical Research – A Stakeholder’s Call to Action,” will describe how industry stakeholders can leverage the study insights to make a difference. Additionally, the presentation will emphasize how clinical research professionals can bolster their clinical trials in several areas, including:

    •      Bridging the gap between clinical research professionals and patients
    •      Developing educational initiatives to highlight the value of clinical research for patients
    •      Nullifying lost clinical trial enrollment opportunities
    •      Improving the clinical trial volunteer experience
    •      Raising clinical research awareness and shaping perceptions among patients

    The 2017 Perceptions & Insights study offers insights into the public and patient perceptions of clinical research. It included responses from 12,427 participants from pharmaceutical, biotechnology and contract research organizations and investigative sites. The study also resulted in reports on the following topics:

    •     Participation Experience: Explores aspects of the clinical research participation experience and highlights opportunities to drive patient engagement.
    •     Participation Decision-Making Process: Examines the decision-making process for clinical research stakeholders and offers insights into how these stakeholders can help patients make informed decisions.
    •     General Perceptions and Knowledge on Clinical Research: Provides insights into the general perceptions and knowledge of global clinical research and how clinical research professionals can provide educational resources to enhance patient partnerships.

    Thanks to the 2017 Perceptions & Insights study, clinical research professionals can assess all aspects of the patient perspective of clinical research. The study paints a picture of how patients view clinical research and provides valuable insights that may lead to more engaging, effective and innovative clinical trials than ever before.
