We are the only country which runs a public awareness campaign across our national health system to encourage people to participate in clinical research – NIHR ‘OK to ask’. We’ve been doing it for three years on the trot to coincide with International Clinical Trials Day (ICTD) in May. Now we want your views on how this year’s campaign went and what we should do next.
It doesn’t matter if you are a local organiser for the ‘OK to ask’ campaign, a patient or carer who took part in an event, a researcher or clinician who helped out. We want to hear from you. And if you need a little reminder of what happened here’s a ‘storify’ of the year’s events.
But even if you have never heard of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) (let alone ‘OK to ask’) before, we’d still like to get your views. For what you tell us will be used to:
- produce a report about the ‘OK to ask’ campaign in 2015 this year which will be made publicly available on NIHR’s website and through our networks.
- think about and plan our public awareness work about research for the future.
You can complete the online survey by clicking on the link here.
And there’re plenty of time to also send on to your friends and colleagues because the survey is open until Friday 11th September 2015 to respond.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Best wishes as ever,
NIHR National Director for Patients and the Public in Research
