An article was recently published in the Clinical Researcher entitled “Increasing Provider Engagement in Clinical Research Starts with Research Awareness:  Leveraging Education and Technology to Improve Participation”.  In this article, the authors indicated that whether directly or indirectly involved with clinical trials, increasing research awareness may increase health outcomes, study accrual, and patient safety.  Subsequently, the ability to enroll in a clinical research trial may improve patient care for some individuals and result in better outcomes for future patients.  Without increasing accrual, sites and sponsors are not able to efficiently conduct clinical trials.
