Clinical Trials Awareness Week, May 4 – 8, 2015, is an ideal time to raise awareness about the importance of clinical trial participation and recognize the individuals who have made new, innovative treatments a reality for patients worldwide – clinical trial researchers and participants. Here are ways to participate in and help promote Clinical Trials Awareness Week.
- Clinical Trials Awareness Week toolkit
The toolkit is a resource guide to help organizations raise awareness of Clinical Trials Awareness Week.
- Clinical Trials Awareness Week congressional district events
These events will be held in Durham, N.C. and Brentwood, Tenn. to highlight the need for a public awareness campaign and encourage patient participation in clinical trials. The events will include a tour of a clinical research facility and a meeting between congressional members (or their staff) and a CCTA member group. Read more here.
- AWARE for All
AWARE for All events, hosted by the Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) aim to educate and empower the public in making informed decisions about clinical research participation. Key components of the AWARE for All events are to learn what clinical trials are and how they work, learn why society needs clinical research, and understand the safety, benefits and risk of clinical research.
The next event will be held on May 5, 2015 at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Click here to register for the event.
