my website is about learning clinicaltrials.gov.  I have started on the paper part but there are some things that need to be completed. 


Overview of Project

Audience and Purpose (suggested completion date: end of week 3)

As you are introduced to your final project, you should begin envisioning your target audience and educational purpose for your website, using that information to consider the best layout for the site. For your final project, you should write a description of your educational purpose (at least 150 words) and target audience (at least 200 words). Read pages 204-205 in the Felke-Morris text for a brief introduction to designing for an audience.

Design (suggested completion date: end of week 3)

When planning for your website, it is important that you begin considering the visual design of your site. While we will discuss this in much more depth in EDTC 5555, you should begin initial planning now. As part of your final project, you should include two elements of design:

  1. Explanation of how you’ll create a unified structure and style – This should be at least 100 words, with specific techniques. Consider the guidelines in Felke-Morris chapter 5.
  2. Projected Color Scheme – Indicate the type of color scheme (e.g. complementary, triadic, etc.). Include visual samples of all major colors your plan to use, along with their hexadecimal code. Read pages 213-218 of the Felke-Morris text and Chapter 7 in the Williams text for guidelines on color. Your visual samples could look similar to what is given at the top of page 214 of the Felke-Morris text (including hexadecimal codes).

Site Map (suggested completion date: end of week 5)

A site map provides a diagram of the organization of your website. Sitemaps can be created with any diagramming tool, including Microsoft Word. Before you begin designing your sitemap and wireframes, it's important to consider your site's purpose, audience, and the navigation structure that would be most appropriate to both. Read pages 205-206 in the Felke-Morris text for a review different approaches to organization, including hierarchical, linear, and random. The minimum number of pages in your final site should be:  a home page, and 5-6 other pages, linked together somehow.

Wireframes (suggested completion date: two at end of week 5, the rest by end of week 7)

Wireframes offer an actual physical mock-up of the pages in your website. Read pages 225-226 in the Felke-Morris text for an overview of wireframes. Wireframes could be created in anything, including Word. There are also some tools available online to help you create them: http://www.creativebloq.com/wireframes/top-wireframing-tools-1112130 (Links to an external site.) . Just be sure that, whichever tool you use, you could export all content to one document for your final project. For a specific overview of the design and purpose of wireframes, view the following video:
http://youtu.be/vXLDqaH9vkE (Links to an external site.)

The details for EACH page on the wireframes should include such things as:

  • the text you’ll include
  • any images
  • the navigation links on each page
  • any html elements (e.g. using tables to layout the page, using an ordered list etc.)

When you actually create this site by coding it next term in EDTC 5555, you will be asked to include certain elements. If you'd like to include them in your planning at this point, they are listed below; however, it is not required that you have all of these elements at this point. You are only required to have the elements included in the checklist below.

The required HTML elements next term will be:

  • A navigation bar on each page that allows me to get to all pages. This could be in the form of a list of links at the top or left of the page, buttons, etc.
  • Tables (at least two)
  • Graphics, appropriate for education and consistent throughout site (at least three)
  • Hyperlinks to appropriate educational web sites AND to other file formats, such as Word documents, PowerPoint Presentations, PDFs, etc. (at least twelve total, four to other web sites, four to other files, and four of your choice)
  • Lists – ordered, unordered, description (at least two of the three)
  • Date last updated (on the main page)
  • Comments, using comment tag (on each page, giving at least your name and date created)
  • Forms, including at least four different elements (at least two forms)
  • Style sheet (at least one external style sheet, formatting a few required elements)
  • An interactive, web 2.0 element (we will cover more of what this means in the second term)

Completion and Submission

Checklist of Requirements

  • an explanation of the EDUCATIONAL purpose of your site (at least 150 words)
  • an explanation of the target audience of your site (at least 200 words) 
  • a visual organization (site map) of your site (Example:  Felke-Morris, pgs 205-206)
  • an explanation of how you will create a unified structure and style for the site as a whole (at least 100 words, with specific techniques)
  • an overview of your color scheme for your site, including:
    • the type of color scheme
    • visual samples
    • hexadecimal codes
  • wireframes from each of six pages in your web site, including the elements you would include on each of those pages  (Example:  Felke-Morris, pgs 225-226).  The total number of pages should be:  a home page, and 5-6 other pages, linked together somehow
  • details for EACH page on the wireframes should include such things as:
    • the text you’ll include
    • any images
    • the navigation links on each page
    • any html elements (e.g. using tables to layout the page, using an ordered list etc.)


  • The project should be submitted as ONE document, in PDF format. Use any necessary tools to merge files of different formats into one document.
  • Upload your final project document to the drop box on WorldClassRoom by the end of week seven.

Educational Purpose

When research first began, there wasn’t a way to track all the clinical trials, so over the years there were laws developed in order to put this database in place. The database was created in order to be able to keep track of all the trials and to provide the public with access. The educational purpose of this training is to inform new Private investigators and their staff on the importance of registering their clinical trials with Clinicaltrials.gov. This class will provide you with resources on the historical information of Clinicaltrials.gov, it will provide information on how to determine if the clinical trial needs to be registered, why it needs to be registered, how to register the trial in Clinicaltrials.gov, and how to enter results in to Clinicaltrials.gov. Please feel free to click on the links that will take you to learning some of the background information of Clinicaltrials.gov, because this training class is a 3 day course.

Target Audience

At the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, it is important that the new research professionals that are being hired understand the purpose for registering the clinical trials into Clinicaltrials.gov. The research professionals include Private Investigators, Sub- Private Investigators, Clinical Researchers, the Research support staff, and Regulatory Affairs specialist. The individuals that were named above tend to maintain the clinical trials information for their study, so it is extremely important that they understand what is expected of them when maintaining the site

Site Map (needs to be completed)

Creating a Unified Structure and Style

Each page will consist of UAMS Clinicalstrials.gov heading in the upper right-hand corner in red and the background color will be gray. On the home page, it will consist of a research photograph as the banner, giving a brief introduction of what the website contains. The font size will be

f at least 100 words explaining how you will give your site a unified structure and style.  Be specific about the techniques you’ll use (e.g. navigation bar on each page, same colors for all H1 headings, etc). Review chapter 5 in the Felke-Morris text for some ideas.

Color Scheme( needs to be completed)

In this space, indicate the type of color scheme (e.g. complementary, triadic, etc.). Include visual samples of all major colors your plan to use, along with their hexadecimal code. Read pages 213-218 of the Felke-Morris text and Chapter 7 in the Williams text for guidelines on color. Your visual samples could look similar to what is given at the top of page 214 of the Felke-Morris text (including hexadecimal codes). See below for a sample of what you might include. (Note that this is a sample only, and not necessarily attractive choices for a website.)

Reduce publication and outcome reporting biases

Facilitate systematic reviews and other analyses of the research literature



Why Registration is Required

It is the law.

Your ability to publish could be affected.

Your funding as an investigator and for the institution could be affected.

Civil monetary penalties up to $10,000 for all violations in a single proceeding.

$10,000/day after 30 day period that the violation is uncorrected.

HHS may withhold remaining or future grants funds

NIH may post public notices of non-compliance and issue penalties.



Agencies that Require Registration

  • FDA
  • NIH
  • CMS

Note: All 4 agencies have the ability to affect funding and publication for noncompliance.



ClinicalTrials.gov Registration Timeframe for Agencies

  • FDA/NIH- study is required to be registered no later than 21 days after 1st subject is enrolled
  • CMS/ICMJE- study must be registered prior to first subject being enrolled



Is My Study an Applicable Clinical Trial

  • Generally:
  • Study type: Interventional
  • Study Phase/Primary Purpose: Other than Phase 1/other than feasibility
  • Studies a U.S. FDA-regulated drug/device product
  • One or more of the following
  • At least one facility location with the U.S./U.S. territory
  • Clinical trial has an IND or IDE
  • A drug/device product under investigation is a product manufactured and exported from the U.S





Decision Tree for NIH Clinical Trial Definition









Does the study involve human participant research?

Are participants prospectively assigned to an intervention?

Is the study designed to evaluate the effect of the intervention on the participants?

Is the effect being evaluated a health-related biomedical or behavioral outcome?

This study is a clinical trial.

The study is NOT a clinical trial.


If UAMS is Lead site:

Clinical Trials.gov administrator in ORRA will notate determination in CLARA

Notify PI of the determination and create new record once IRB approval is obtained.

Administrator will work with PI to have record approved by CT.gov, who will then provide the NCT number.
