Returning Plain-Language Summaries
to Research Participants
Best Practices for Sponsors and the Role of the IRB

A WCG | CenterWatch FREE Webinar
Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018 • 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EST

Clinical trial subjects deserve to know what they’re getting into. Yet the information at ClincialTrials.gov is far too technical for the average lay person. What can you do to increase subject knowledge and involvement … while decreasing the threat of angry lawsuits?

Make the move to plain-language patient summaries. Discover how.

Mark your calendar for a free webinar from the clinical-trial experts and WCG. Over the course of a fast-paced hour, you’ll discover:

  • Best practices: The state of the art in preparing plain-language summaries
  • Current guidance: Working with Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) that oversee the clinical trials for which patient summaries are provided
  • Case study: How one sponsor works with IRBs during the plain-language-summary creation and delivery process
  • Regulatory issues: Upcoming regulations that may affect how you provide trial results to participants
  • And much more

Your speakers are Jill McNair and David Forster Esq. Ms. McNair is Senior Director for Patient Engagement at The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) where she helps trial sponsors turn medicalese into everyday English. Mr. Forster is chief compliance officer of WIRB-Copernicus Group, tasked with enhancing patient protections in clinical trials.

Why risk trial-subject anger that can lead to lawsuits, liability and other unpleasantness? Plain-language patient summaries slash that risk while smoothing the trial process. Close the communications gap now with this valuable free webinar.
