Patient enrollment and participation in clinical trials is a necessary part of bringing safe and effective medicines to the patients who need them, yet it presents a continuing challenge in drug development. Efforts to increase patient and provider participation in research often start with clinical trial awareness and education initiatives. This session features the latest generation of clinical trial awareness efforts (for example, the crowdsourcing Ideathon organized by INC Research and CISCRP), to campaigns led by patient advocacy groups as well as the industry coalition TransCelerate. The session will explore how these efforts are designed to bring new participants into the system, both patients and providers. Speakers will discuss measurable design elements of campaigns, such as calls to action that can help us trace awareness to enrollment.

Learning Objectives

Describe elements of content creation, media planning and execution; Develop a metrics pathway and reports illuminating awareness to enrollment.
