Platinum Awarded

3-part Animated Educational Clinical Research Video Series

CISCRP brought several subject matter experts together to develop, design and release a 3-part, animated, live action video series that shares how new therapies are developed, the safeguards in place, how clinical trials are adapting to be more accessible in the current environment, and explains the role each person has involved in clinical research. Thank you to our sponsors.

  • Overview of clinical trials and the process.
  • Different study phases, meanings and timelines.
  • Safeguards in place when participating in a clinical trial.
  • How new treatments are developed under specific requirements and different study designs.
  • Regulatory oversight and guidelines are in place for the conduct of safe and ethical clinical trials.
  • How clinical trials are adapting to make them more accessible for participants.
  • Who is involved in a clinical trial?
  • What are the important roles and purposes each person has when involved in a clinical trial?
  • How is a clinical trial conducted safely and ethically?

Finding Treatments Together Brochure Series

These brochures were developed together with members of communities that have not been well represented in clinical trials, as well as subject matter experts who have experience working with these communities. This included receiving feedback from 500 members of those communities through an anonymous survey for each brochure.

They all helped make sure the topics, language, images, and design are appropriate and engaging. This process allowed us to confirm that we are addressing the key concerns and barriers that prevent better Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in clinical research.
