CISCRP Updates its Educational Brochures Library

Exciting news about CISCRP’s educational resources! In 2016, CISCRP will be releasing new updated and redesigned versions of our award-winning brochures. As an organization CISCRP strives to provide information that is accurate, culturally-relevant, and easy-to-read. Our newly designed and updated brochures are written at a 6th grade reading level on a variety of topics including:

  • Should I Participate? (formerly Education Before Participation), an introduction to clinical research participation.
  • Debunking Common Myths, an easy-to-understand explanation and debunking of common myths about clinical research.
  • Should My Child Participate? (formerly Children and Clinical Studies), a resource for parents interested in learning about their children’s options for clinical research.
  • What is a Placebo?, offering information about placebos and how they are used in clinical trials.
  • African Americans and Clinical Research, explaining the basics of clinical research and why African American volunteers are needed.
  • Los Hispanos y la Investigacion Clinica, an educational Spanish-language brochure for the Hispanic community explaining the importance of clinical research participation.

You may also notice a new seal of approval on the back page of our new materials, indicating that text was reviewed and approved by a CISCRP editorial panel.

Throughout the content revision process, we have engaged patients, study participants, patient advocates, and clinical research professionals to review our materials and provide feedback so that we can better serve our readers with clear, concise, and accurate information. We consider this editorial feedback extremely valuable in ensuring that our materials provide high quality content that is accessible to readers of various literacy levels.

CISCRP educational brochures engage and inform patients, family members of study participants, and the general public about what it means to participate in a clinical trial. Brochures are available for order through the CISCRP store in up to 35 different languages, and are available with special bulk pricing—perfect for distributing in physician and investigative site waiting areas.
