CISCRP’s first Public and Patient Perceptions & Insights Seminar took place on February 12th at the One Financial Conference Center in Downtown Boston. More than 30 clinical research professionals attended the half-day interactive forum to discuss the results of CISCRP’s global study assessing public and patient attitudes and perceptions about clinical research. This study has generated considerable interest in the research community, and discussions at the seminar focused on the study volunteer experience and the importance of engaging patients as partners in clinical trials.
The program was sponsored by inVentiv Health, moderated by CISCRP’s Board Chairman and Founder Ken Getz, and hosted by Rebecca’s Café. inVentiv Health’s Jim Kremidas also led a presentation about how industry professionals can better tailor their outreach to reflect the differing needs and preferences of patient groups.
With these seminars, CISCRP and inVentiv Health hope to amplify the voices of patients to encourage discussion among the research community and ultimately improve the participation experience for volunteers.
