Best Practices


This working group has been created to develop a proactive communications platform to publicize ICON’s efforts and translate complex scientific concepts into materials easily understood by a broad cross-section of stakeholders. To accomplish this objective, the group has developed the following strategic tasks:

  • Enhance ICON’s public portal so that key communication topics for ICON are readily accessible and understandable to all interested stakeholders
  • Develop and maintain an information monitoring program that identifies key announcements and reports/papers that ICON should respond to
  • Establish protocols and program for implementing and maintaining a media alert service and an expert referral service
  • Create and maintain an ICON document library and standardize its representation in print and other media
  • Support recruitment and membership efforts for ICON by creating promotional materials and publicity plans that identify ICON’s mission clearly
