Community Engagement

People at the heart of clinical development

Community engagement is key to the success of clinical research and it is at the heart of what we do.

We make sure communities are involved in each step of your clinical research by not only outreaching to the public with traditional and digital channels to raise awareness and recruit patients for your study, but also by forging strong relationship via Patient Advocacy Groups (PAGs), conducting Patient & Community Insights and developing in-house compelling patient recruitment materials.

Study Branding & Design

Tailored patient-centric design approach

Our  in-house creative team works with you to develop a unique branding for your study.  We will make sure your clinical trial stands out from the crowd  to increase site and patient engagement which will ultimately benefit your study goals.

Patient Advocacy Group (PAG) Support

Including patients each step of the way

We build relationships and partnerships with patient advocacy groups because we know how important this can be in raising awareness of clinical trials. We have the ability to engage PAGs at a national and local level in more than 70 countries.

Our PAG services in this area include:

  • Research and engagement planning
  • Outreach
  • Study materials feedback from PAG
  • Tailored PAG interaction based on country and language
  • Surveys

Community Outreach

Raising public awareness of clinical trials

Patient recruitment rates can benefit from raising awareness of clinical trials in local communities. Informed and engaged communities will be more willing to join a research study, which will ultimately benefit your study objectives. With a global team of local Clinical Enrolment Managers (CEMs), we can reach any  local communities to promote your clinical studies.

Digital Campaigns

Boosting patient engagement & recruitment online

Digital advertising campaigns represent a crucial  tool  which could open the door to a new pool of potential participants for your studies. By leveraging the power of the Internet, Innovative Trials implements targeted digital campaigns across many platforms and channels, driving traffic to study websites and subsequently driving pre-qualified referrals to research sites.

Patient & Community Insights

Design and optimize your clinical trial with your patients in mind

Incorporating the patient voice is one of the key elements that could help you in hitting your clinical study targets and avoid delays. We can help you fully understand patient & community perspectives to make sure that your study is not missing any opportunities. We offer a wide range of insight services such as patient surveys, social media listening and patient advocacy group relationships.

Patient Materials

Bespoke patient recruitment materials which resonate with your target population

Informative, motivating and culturally relevant patient materials  are a decisive factor which can drive your study to success. At innovative Trials we have a  full creative team that considers patient insights, population, therapy area and protocol-specific requirements to develop unique branding, including colour palette, imagery, design and layout. Our materials range from printed booklets to animations and interactive content guides.
