The Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) has announced the updated version of The Gift of Participation is now available. 'The Gift' was written as a guide for patients and their families considering participation in clinical trials. It was also written as a resource for professionals to use when discussing the clinical research process with their patients and the public. This new edition contains updated chapters and includes new material about social media use in clinical trials; the Sunshine Act and new laws about clinical trials data disclosure and transparency.
During the past five years, more than 200,000 copies of the first edition have been purchased and distributed. All of the proceeds from the book's sales are donated to CISCRP to support its public education and outreach initiatives.
