Initial list of PIS modules

Giovanna and Mattia have produced an initial list of modules that could be used to build a Patient Information Sheet (PIS). As discussed in the meeting last week, the intention is to split the modules into two parts; part 1 containing study specific information and part 2 containing more general information relevant for research studies at the King’s College London imaging centres.

The list was provided as a set of PowerPoint slides, one slide per module, with an example slide shown in the header image of this blog post. Slides with a blue background are in part 1 of the PIS, with slides from part 2 having a yellow background. The slide contents are summarised in the table below:

No.Module headingModule contents
1Title of study

(Date, version number, IRAS and REC should be included in the footer of each slide / page)
Front page information: research team / date & version number / REC code / IRAS ID
Text to explain the structure of the PIS and what to expect from it
Part 1
2What is the purpose of this study?figure; simplified and clear text
3Why have I been invited to take part?figure; simplified and clear text
4What will taking part involve?figure; flowchart; simplified and clear text
5Imaging technique used in the studySomething reusable about PET and MRI imaging.
This is the core of what we are doing and it would be good to have a general scheme that the two modalities can include.

List of initial modules for a Patient Information Sheet

Gill will use these modules will be used as a starting point to determine what visual and graphic elements need to be created. Certain modules may require several images / sections while others will simply require suitable text. Producing appropriate content for Module 5, in particular, will be a small graphic design project in its own right.
