Could sharing results improve recruitment participants?

Communication is a big barrier in clinical researchers’ reporting of their findings to study participants.


A recent study found that most participants in clinical trials are not informed about the results of their trials.

Seventy-five percent of participants would like to know the results of their studies but 70% of them did not receive it.

Ninety-five percent of clinical researchers believed that it is important to let the participants know about the results.

But the clinical researchers said they were not properly trained to communicate or release the study results to the participants.

The findings also reveal that making the results understandable to trial participants can make them feel like respected and valued research partners.

It can also help improve the recruitment and retention of clinical trial participants.



  1. Letting clinical trial participants know the result of their studies can make them feel like research partners but most of them were not given the results.
  2. Clinical researchers are willing to share the results with participants but are not properly trained to do so.
  3. Thus, translational research should focus on teaching clinical researchers how to translate their findings into an understandable message for the participants and other interested individuals.


“I’ve been doing research for 20 years but was unaware how much the research community feels unequipped to report their findings to study participants,” says Teresa Kelechi, senior author of the study and associate dean for research in the MUSC College of Nursing.
