NIH Seeks Public Comment on Draft Behavioral and Social Clinical Trial Template
Today, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued a notice in the
NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts
seeking comment on a Draft Behavioral and Social Clinical Trial Template. The template was created to guide investigators through the systematic development of a comprehensive clinical protocol and will be especially helpful to investigators who are less familiar with the information and the level of detail that is required in such a protocol. The template has also been tailored specifically for studies involving a social or behavioral intervention.
Comments on the draft template will be accepted through
Oct. 11, 2018
, and can be made electronically by visiting
For a perspective on the importance of this template, please see the latest
