Writing Tips

Writing for clinical trials advertising requires a skillful touch to attract the attention of potential participants while adhering to legal standards, policies and brand guidelines. Here are some basic tips:

  • Create short, punchy headlines that tie to the idea of the study, for example: 

    “Walk for Life” for a study about how exercise affects senior citizens.
    “Win by Losing” for a study on dieting.
    “Be Heart Healthy” for a study on blood pressure.
  • Use the words 'research study' somewhere in the text.
  • Keep the text on point, but say directly what the study involves, including the time required of participants.
  • In headlines or text, language suggesting that participants can “earn money” or that promises a “new treatment” is not acceptable. The language must be neither coercive nor misleading.
