Trial Participant Communications

Keep participants engaged through our series of ongoing trial communications.

Develop and deliver thank you cards and other communications that help educate and keep trial participants engaged throughout the clinical research process.

The Problem

Patients want more communication about their trial.

As clinical trial protocol designs increase in complexity, it becomes more difficult to recruit eligible participants and retain them for the full duration of trials.1

The 2021 CISCRP survey showed that 22% of trial participants never received any trial updates while they were enrolled in a study.Trial participants not only want to receive trial results, they also want to be updated regularly during the often-extensive period between the last site visit and the completion of the trial.

22%

of trial participants never received any trial updates while they were enrolled in a study.

CISCRP's Solution

CISCRP develops and delivers printed communications to trial sites to provide updates to participants about their trial and general education on a variety of clinical trial topics, such as blinding, placebo, phases of research, and different types of trials.

  • Thank You Cards
  • Custom Educational Communication Material
  • Educational Brochures

Implement this program for a single study or standardize a systematic process to provide study-specific communications to participants via study sites or participant-facing portals.

Thank You Cards

Leverage our extensive, global experience providing ethics-approved, postcard style communications that thank trial participants for their important role in advancing medical science.

Custom Educational Communication Material

We have developed a process to continually engage and update participants on overall trial progress, particularly those in long-running studies. Customize these communications to be relevant to specific study protocols and provide general education of research topics.

Educational Brochures

Utilize our wide array of educational brochures to empower patients about making informed decisions about clinical research participation.
