Health literacy can transform clinical trials.
We use health literacy to make complex science and clinical trial information clear, accessible, and meaningful.
We find that many organizations use plain language principles but miss the true meaning and power of a full health literate approach. We use health literacy to translate key details and data into clear and usable materials that confidently, accurately, and creatively convey complex information.
Clear communication throughout the full clinical trial process
We can help you improve communication any stage of your clinical trial process from from recruitment to results:
Health literate recruitment materials engage everyone and encourage diverse representation
An understandable consent process is essential to true and legal informed consent
Clear data collection forms ensure accurate data — no matter if the trial is local or decentralized
Patient-friendly summaries help patients understand their role and encourage future participation
Constant collection of insights ensures all research is grounded in the patients’ values
Staff communication strategies can facilitate meaningful participation for all involved
Clinical trial communication at its best
We infuse health literacy strategies into every aspect of the clinical trial process, to increase understanding of science and clinical trial information, while meeting all regulatory timelines and requirements.
