Sharing aggregate results with research participants helps ensure that they are informed about the trial results, know their participation is appreciated, and understand the value of their contribution to science and public health.
Sharing aggregate results is closely tied with individual result sharing. Sharing aggregate results may prompt questions about and expectations for sharing of individual results and can help inform the context for interpretation of individual research results.
The MRCT Center coordinated a multi-stakeholder workgroup to develop guidance for effective development and delivery of aggregate results. This guidance covers content, process, logistics, and other considerations.
