The CTO Talk Clinical Trials campaign is aimed at building awareness of clinical trials. We are encouraging individuals and organizations to use the hashtag #talkclinicaltrials on social media platforms to:

  • encourage the exchange of perspectives on how people are involved in and impacted by clinical trials
  • share resources and information about clinical trials that people and organizations find useful and informative
  • to highlight Canada’s strengths in clinical trials.

 

CTO is launching this initiative in conjunction with International Clinical Trials Day on May 20, 2018 and encourage you to continue to use the hashtag beyond this date. Some things you may wish to share include:

  • Your organization’s clinical trials or research website
  • Videos that your organization has about clinical trials
  • Facts about clinical trials
  • Conversations with healthcare providers about clinical trials
  • Personal experiences of being in a clinical trial or supporting a loved one who participated in a clinical trial
  • A fact about clinical trials that you may want to highlight or learn more about
  • If you are involved in running clinical trials, your role and what you enjoy most about what you do
  • How clinical trials have impacted you
  • Ways that others can get involved in the conversation about clinical trials.

 

We have also developed some example social media posts that you can use or adapt:
