Inform Rare has launched a new resource – CommuniKIDS – a template to help researchers convey clinical trial results back to participating youth and their families in plain easy to understand language.
CommuniKIDS, funded in 2021 by CHILD-BRIGHT, takes its inspiration from Clinical Trials Ontario (CTO)’s recently developed Plain Language Results Summary template, and was developed to support researchers convey clinical trial results to participating youth and their families. In partnership with youth and parents, they have adapted the CTO template to meet the needs of sharing pediatric research results to children and their families.
The editable CommuniKIDS template comes with instructions as well as a “tip sheet”, which provides additional guidance on how to convey information in plain language. This toolkit will also be available in French by summer 2022.
