Brand-aids for Clinical Trial Engagement

By Danielle Frate, Art Director on Tue, Sep 15, 2020 | 5 min read

 

While the public’s awareness of clinical studies as avenues to receive the latest potential treatments, contribute to medical science, and benefit from added care and attention grows, the need to ensure that patients are aware of study opportunities is crucial. Clinical teams are no longer simply referring to their study based on its protocol title or number, but instead selecting a consumer-facing name accompanied by a logo or icon to identify it within the marketplace.

But a brand is more than just a logo – it’s a means to create a first impression with a desired audience. Gone are the days when brands were reserved for consumer products. The earlier you are able to establish a brand for your study, the greater the chance you will achieve positive recognition throughout all phases - and perhaps even set the stage for post-approval marketing.
