StudyPages is proud to support clinical research at UC Davis Veterinary Medicine. If you'd like to know more, click below to visit their StudyPages gallery and browse the latest veterinary research!
We continuously look for ways to improve the StudyPages user experience. To understand how we are doing, we invited all users who logged into StudyPages over the past month to complete a user survey. We're excited to share the results!
Overall, users feel StudyPages is easy-to-use, is a great tool to track and manage people interested in research participation, helps their team recruit faster, and enables them deliver a better experience for participants. They also shared useful feedback and feature requests for us to continue expanding the platform. You can find the full report below.
If you'd like to discuss these results or explore how StudyPages can support your research, please don't hesitate to reach out and request a demo.
As part of ongoing efforts to upgrade the MyUCDavisHealth web portal (formerly called MyChart), a new functionality was recently launched that enables patients to browse research studies currently recruiting volunteers and to set notification preferences. This improves access to an array of opportunities to participate in leading-edge research with the potential to improve health care for the UC Davis community.
The MyUCDavisHealth web portal and StudyPages (a user-friendly, curated search tool that research teams use to share information and manage volunteers) leverage technology and social media to enhance participation in clinical research – a UC Davis Health leadership priority.
Other aspects of the project include the creation of a website to aggregate information about all clinical trials at UC Davis and provide information that educates patients about what it means to participate in clinical research. The website overlays the StudyPages search tool and can be seen by clicking below.
UC Davis CTSC adopted a platform that changes how study teams find and manage people interested in participating in research. It deepens and enhances our capability to communicate about research opportunities and helps us deliver a connected experience. Presenters discuss creation of a community-facing resource; connecting study teams with potential participants through technology; leveraging social media for targeted outreach; success stories and use cases.
The Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University is the first center of its kind, aiming not only to find better treatments for children and adults with allergies and asthma, but to discover underlying immune mechanisms against the diseases and develop a lasting cure.
Led by Dr. Kari Nadeau, a trailblazer in allergy research, their interdisciplinary center focuses on understanding the mechanisms of the immune system, the dysfunctions of which results in allergic reactions.
The Center leads or participates in many clinical trials to develop new therapies for allergic disorders. Their research may have implications for a wide array of immune dysfunctions including asthma, eczema, food allergies, eosinophilic disorders, drug allergies, gastroenterological diseases, and more.
UC Davis Health’s Clinical Studies website, developed to deepen and enhance communication and interaction with the community about research, was recognized for its innovative strategies to foster patient recruitment by the Society for Clinical Research Sites at their annual Site Solutions Summit on Oct. 14.
The site was one of the finalists for the Site Patient Recruitment Innovation Award for its public-private partnership with StudyPages, a clinical research participant recruitment and engagement platform. The initiative also included strong collaborations with the health system’s Clinical and Translational Science Center, Institutional Review Board and the Department of Public Affairs and Marketing.
