Research for Her TM, an online clinical research registry, honored with distinguished national award
Date:1/13/2014

LOS ANGELES (Jan. 14, 2014) Research for HerTM , a Cedars-Sinai online medical research database aimed at increasing women's participation in clinical studies, received the 2013 Award for Excellence from the Health Improvement Institute for its user-friendly electronic consent form.

The Research for Her registry allows women to register for potential participation in clinical trials through an online, verified consent process that is just two pages long and written in nontechnical, easy-to-understand language. In comparison, a typical clinical trial consent form, even for low-risk clinical trials, is a printed document ranging from eight to 15 pages and includes complex medical and legal terminology.

"By listening to the new ideas and barriers of our target population, we were able to respond and adapt to better meet the needs of women in the community," said Beth Y. Karlan, MD, director of the Women's Cancer Program at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, director in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, director of the Gilda Radner Hereditary Cancer Program and the Board of Governors Chair in Gynecologic Oncology. "Women have responded affirmatively and we have more than quadrupled the monthly enrollment average in our clinical trials. The hope is for this template to become standard practice for low-risk clinical trial enrollment across the nation and to bolster women's access to cutting-edge clinical studies."

Research for Her was awarded the 2013 Award for Excellence in Human Research Protection for Best Practice from the Health Improvement Institute because of Cedars-Sinai's commitment to developing practices that safeguard the safety and welfare of research participants while keeping up with modern technology and lifestyles.

"Online consenting is not only sustainable, it is vital to the growth of research programs, such as Research for Her," said Eifaan
