Increasingly, during clinical research development, decisions are made on how to make trials more patient centric, increase patient engagement, and how/when patients will receive their individual research results. In this session, a patient advocate will share perspectives on each of these elements of research design and execution and a bioethicist will share the bioethical considerations for providing individual clinical trial test results to patients. Finally, participants will also hear about a pharmaceutical company's challenges and lessons learned when they decided to thank their clinical trial patients in a national television advertisement.

Learning Objectives

Recognize an increased awareness of clinical trial patients desired benefits from participating in a research study; Describe bioethical considerations when determining whether to provide clinical trial patients with their individual trial test results; Discuss a sponsor company’s experience with thanking clinical trial patients in a television advertisement.
