The article has now been published. Many thanks to all of you who took the time to help me with the research.

I am doing some research for an article I am writing on using social media to support clinical trial recruitment and I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic.

I’d particularly like to know:

  • If you have found out about clinical trials via social media channels?
  • Or looked for more information/reached out to someone for trial information on social media?
  • What factors would encourage you to support a clinical trial (even if you are not a participant) by sharing information on it via social media?
  • For those who are/were on clinical trials, did social media play a part in finding support where you are/were on the trial?
  • Did you write about your trial on your blog or via Facebook updates?
  • Can you share with me any best practice/good examples of clinical trial recruitment via social media
  • If I  use any quotes from you in my article,  I will, of course, give full credit.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
