GetResearchSmart LLC Website Founder Honored as Guest Editor
Date:9/19/2008

The Founder and Managing Member of GetResearchSmart LLC serves as Guest Editor for a special issue of The Monitor, journal of the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP), entitled Measuring Trust in Clinical Research.

St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) September 19, 2008 -- The September 2008 issue of The Monitor, journal of the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP), is dedicated to the topic of public trust and confidence about participation in clinical research. It is accessible online (http://www.acrpnet.org/TheMonitor/September2008). Dr. Clifford C. Scharke, D.M.D., M.P.H., Founder and Managing Member of GetResearchSmart LLC and current member of the Editorial Advisory Board to The Monitor, serves as Guest Editor for this special issue of The Monitor.

Participation in clinical research remains, as it should, a personal decision. However, trust and confidence are essential prerequisites before participation in ethical research can be considered. In no small part, the progress of medical care depends on an effective partnership of researchers and those who participate as research subjects.

Contributing authors to the September issue of The Monitor discuss: current state of trust; clinical trial transparency; selected available information resources; views from the vantage point of both investigator and those offered participation; and future directions. Some benchmark findings of interest are worthy of note: the public appreciates medical advances but not how they are achieved; low and declining levels of interest in research participation are reported; and both researchers and those who participate as research subjects are viewed negatively by others.

How can trust and confidence be enhanced? Several authors discuss: ways to build public awareness (to include Congressional, governmental and nonprofit plans); learning from past success elsewhere; and reaching out with initiatives to include researcher-community collaborations and partnerships.

Dr. Scharke's resume includes a combined twenty years of service in the Office for Human Research Protections and its predecessor office within the current U.S Department of Health and Human Services. The GetResearchSmart LLC website aims to provide helpful information, tools, and references with which to better understand the human research environment. Handy tools can be downloaded for more in-depth review and future reference.
