The Evidence Multiplier report explores using patients’ experiences of clinical trials to maximise knowledge and drive future success.
Because Alterline has undertaken such extensive work on patient experience, it was surprising for us to discover the lack of attention that has been paid to this area of practice within clinical research − particularly given the enormous variation that we know exists in the participants experiences of clinical trials.
Recognising this as an opportunity to apply our expertise to a crucial area of healthcare innovation, we brought together what we know in The Evidence Multiplier. This report can be downloaded below.
In this short document, based on our own research experience and the wider literature, we make the case for maximising the knowledge output of clinical trials, by employing them as a source of both clinical data and psycho-social evidence of the participant journey.
We trace the touch-points along this pathway, illuminating areas where evidence-based innovations in process and procedure can make a critical difference to the power and cost-effectiveness of subsequent clinical research.
