Quintiles Launches New Web Site
Quintiles launched a new web site, www.clinicalresearch.com, for those who have little or no understanding of clinical research.
“Research shows that 75% of the general public state they have little or no knowledge of clinical research and the participation process. We want to fundamentally change that statistic,” said Chris Cabell, head of Global Access to Patients at Quintiles.
“If patients and their families are more aware of the opportunities that clinical research can provide, they will be better able to make informed decisions about participating in research and helping drive the development of new and better medicines.”
Patients can identify ongoing or future clinical trials appropriate for their disease or condition and narrow them down to those that are geographically convenient.
Along with comprehensive supporting information about clinical research, including videos of patient experiences and news from recent studies, the site will allow patients to connect with other individuals about their insight into clinical research.
