The Clinical Research Awareness Initiative targets TransCelerate’s strategic priority of improving the patient experience by better informing patients that are participating in clinical trials. As of January 2021, the Clinical Research Initiative is completed. There are no new deliverables or updates planned.
Clinical trial participation is often not considered by patients or their health care providers and is driven by, among other factors, a lack of familiarity and general public engagement with clinical research. Meanwhile, the role of patients and health consumers continues to evolve as they take more ownership of their own health care and decisions about care options.
Clinical Research Awareness seeks to educate the public about clinical research and encourage conversations about clinical trials between patients and their health care providers.
