The New England Research Subject Advocacy Group
The New England RSA Group (NE RSA) is committed to increasing community awareness of clinical research and building clinical research capacity and sustainability in New England and beyond.
Composed of representatives from the New England region's CTSA hubs, the NE RSA explores common issues, interests and concerns related to research participant safety and the experience of participation. In particular, the group has focused on the development and distribution of publicly-accessible informational resources, including an online library of nearly two dozen high-quality, plan language brochures covering topics in health research, research participation, and common research procedures. All brochures are available in English as well as 15 additional languages; brochures are available via Harvard Catalyst's website and may be adapted for use across the CTSA consortium.
