Description: Many universities are already ensuring that all their clinical trials report results in a timely fashion. How can my own university too achieve excellence and prevent research waste?

Intended methods: This workshop will enable participants to create a draft roadmap to excellence in clinical trial transparency for use by their own university while exchanging experiences with colleagues from other institutions. It is based a combination of two modules delivered during a recent BIH QUEST Center workshop on clinical trial reporting, which received very positive evaluations from participants, but the format will be adopted slightly to make it even more interactive. The focus is on summary results reporting on trial registries.

An initial 15 minute presentation will introduce participants to steps taken and lessons learnt by universities in the US and UK that have put into place strong policies, systems and processes to ensure that every clinical trial is registered and reported.

During the subsequent 60 minutes, participants working in small groups will create a roadmap to excellence for later use by their own university. This involves identifying the many individual items – e.g. budgeting for trial reporting in grants, integrating registry data requirements into trial design, training researchers, auditing trial portfolios – that are required to build a functioning system, and then arranging them in chronological order. Halfway through this 60 minutes exercise, participants will be reshuffled into new small groups to promote peer-to-peer exchanges and cross-learning.

The final 15 minutes will be dedicated to small groups giving feedback to the group as a whole.

As follow-up, the facilitator will photograph the roadmaps produced, write them up and circulate them to all workshop participants by email.
