"Cancer Health Assessments Reaching Many" Study
For the CHARM study (part of the Clinical Sequencing Evidence-Generating Research consortium), we created a set of graphics that were used on the informed consent document. The graphics help to explain basic concepts of genetic testing, hereditary cancer, and information privacy.
"Demonstrating Respect and Acceptable Consent Strategies" Study
Working with researchers at Johns Hopkins University, we created a series of storybook-style animations that depicted variations of a doctor's appointment. In the animations, the patient is asked to participate in a research study comparing the effectiveness of two types of medication.
The ROMP Ethics Study
The ROMP Ethics Study is an NIH-funded national survey assessing public attitudes about the ethics of Research on Medical Practices. We created a series of whiteboard videos and comics for use in triggering group discussions and survey responses. Learn more about this project.
The VALUES Project
The VALUES Project investigated the perspectives of diverse patients on prospective, longitudinal research that uses patient samples and data. Our role was to develop a series of videos using the metaphor of a library as a repository of medical information. You can learn more on the project website: TheValuesProject.stanford.edu.
