    Oxford University seeks examples of patient friendly materials on clinical trials

    Oxford University and the Cochrane Consumer Network is working to collect online learning resources that help the public have a better understanding of research in clinical trials.

    If you have seen material online that helped you or your service users understand an aspect of clinical trials, perhaps it was about randomisation, blinding, statistics, bias, or other related topics, then they would like to hear about it. All types of materials will be collected – from Youtube videos to a website, a podcast, book, blog, etc.

    They have created a short webform in several languages. If you could suggest any resource you know about, or forward this on to your colleagues and networks, it would benefit this project immensely! Please click on the link below to be taken to the web form.

    All open resources will be collated and made available via a simple database. This work forms part of The ECRAN Project (European Communication of Research Awareness Needs), which is funded by the European Commission (EU). It is being undertaken by Oxford University Hospitals, in collaboration with the Cochrane Consumer Network (CCNet).
