ClinicalTrials.gov: Results Reporting, Unique Evidence, and Evolving Policy
This is a pilot class for ClinicalTrials.gov. ClinicalTrials.gov is the openly available federal registry and results database of clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world. ClinicalTrials.gov is a vital resource for researchers, healthcare providers, and health sciences librarians who wish to consult the entire body of evidence on any particular topic.
Class objectives: to learn about the significance of ClinicalTrials.gov, how to search and interpret the results database, to be informed about the low compliance rate of results reporting and most importantly, how health sciences librarians can advocate to clinical researchers the importance of complying to results requirements
The course is available on the Moodle system of NN/LM. There are three modules, which contain a PowerPoint lecture, reading, and a discussion assignment. The first module will cover what a clinical trial is and why Clinicaltrials.gov is a significant resource, the second module will demonstrate ways to search and interpret ClinicalTrials.gov, and the third module will discuss the low compliance rate among results reporting. The last module will also discuss the unique position health sciences librarians are in to advocate for accurate results reporting in the clinical research community.
