A leaflet about Participant Identification Centres (PICs) has been produced by the National Institute for Health Research's Clinical Research Network Coordinating Centre (NIHR CRNCC). It lays out the following useful information:
what a PIC is (any organisation responsible for identifying and informing potential participants about a study taking place in another organisation)
what it is not
the benefits of including PICs in your clinical research projects
what organisations will want to know when considering whether to act as a PIC
the differences between PICs and research sites.
The leaflet also gives information on common pitfalls and solutions and clear guidance on how to complete forms. The leaflet can be downloaded from the NIHR's website.
