Why did we have a development initiative around a national website for clinical studies?

As part of the task of national coordination of clinical studies, a need for a website with information on how to conduct clinical studies in Sweden was identified.

 

The website’s stakeholders include researchers, managers in the health care sector, the life science industry, regional node managers and patient organisations.

The aim of kliniskastudier.se has been to create a coherent source of information on clinical studies in Sweden. The website contains information that facilitates the execution of clinical studies, gives inspiration to new studies and describes Sweden as a research country.

What was the result of the development initiative?

A website containing:

  • presentations of initiatives within Clinical Studies Sweden (Development initiatives)
  • a summary of tools and resources as well as information that facilitates planning and execution of clinical studies (Clinical studies - step by step)
  • a description of Sweden as a research country (The Swedish healthcare system and Phase 1 units for clinical trials)
  • information on where to get support (Regional nodes)
  • a number of interviews that are meant to inspire on how to work with clinical studies within the healthcare sector (Good examples)
  • information for study participants (Participating in a clinical study)
  • information on National conference on clinical studies
  • information on statistics about clinical studies (Statistics)
  • self-produced news related to existing content on the website, for example interviews with project managers and other actors within Clinical Studies Sweden, comments on reports or publications, abstracts from seminars and conferences (News)
  • short notices with links to external actors who publish information relevant to our task, for example on new laws or regulations, guidelines, initiatives, reports, publications or statistics (News)
  • calendar events in the form of calls, information meetings, seminars or conferences (Calendar, only in Swedish)

What happens next?

The website is now in management, which means that existing content is continuously reviewed. In terms of new content we focus on interviews, calendar events and news. In addition, we monitor traffic to and on the website, optimize the content for search engines and ensure that the content is adapted to our stakeholders.
