Description

These three PowerPoint presentations, which are in Spanish, provide a basic overview of clinical trials. They can be used by community leaders, advocates and health care providers when discussing clinical trials with Spanish-speaking audiences who are not familiar with the topic.

Details

  • "Conversemos un rato" covers the basics about clinical trials--what they are, who takes part, different types of trials, protecting patient safety, risks and benefits of trials, where to find trials, and issues of concern to Latino audiences. 
  • "La Historia de Ana" is a fotonovela-style presentation that takes you on the journey of Ana, a woman who is given the option of enrolling in a treatment clinical trial. 
  • "La Historia de José" is a presentation that takes you on the journey of José, a man who is given the option of enrolling in a prevention clinical trial.
