Effective communication is fundamental to the ethical design and conduct of clinical trials. Research participants cannot make an informed decision to participate in a clinical trial without clear communications from the research professionals supporting the trial. These evidence-based practices will help clinical research professionals in the conduct of their clinical trial activities, including patient education and informed consent. It is important for clinical research professionals to learn that effective communication is not simply parroting information to patients and hoping they understand, but deliberately engaging with patients to present information in a way they can understand and use that information to make clinical decisions.

Upon completion of this Webinar, attendees should be able to understand and identify:

  1. Define benefits, risks, uncertainty, and patient preferences regarding the use of medical technology
  2. Understand the evidence-based practices for communicating the benefits, risks, and uncertainty regarding medical technology to patients and providers
  3. Identify best methods for benefit-risk communication to patients and how such information can be most effectively developed

Webinar Replay expires December 16, 2024.
