INC Research and CISCRP – collaborators in raising awareness of clinical research – have officially began accepting submissions for the Inspiring Hope Ideathon, an innovative new initiative designed to promote greater awareness of the importance of clinical trial participation in advancing public health. 

Our goal for the Ideathon is to build a community of problem-solving advocates to present creative ideas that are feasible, sustainable and create a long-term impact in the broader clinical research community. I strongly encourage industry thought leaders and clinical research advocates alike to contribute their visions for shifting the paradigm and improving healthcare quality and standards through clinical research. We are seeking suggestions to address four core industry challenges:

  • Raising public awareness about the role that clinical research plays in our society
  • Building more momentum to increase personal, long-term and ongoing participation in clinical studies
  • Stimulating more active engagement within the clinical research community, particularly those who seek alternative health care options
  • Creating higher levels of recognition and appreciation for clinical trial volunteers.

Submitted ideas should have the potential to make a positive impact in the industry that will lead to more effective engagement with patients, healthcare professionals and disease support groups. Entries will be evaluated to determine the shortlist of finalists who will be invited to the Inspiring Hope Ideathon event to continue to develop their idea. Please help us amplify the conversation on social media by sharing Ideathon information and promotions using the #ideas4patients hashtag. Together we can shift the paradigm and collaborate to improve healthcare through clinical trials!
