Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are studies that look at new ways to prevent or treat illness or disease, or to control the side effects of treatments. Your patients may be able to take part in one depending upon their type of illness.

Choosing to participate in a clinical trial is a personal decision. If your patient is considering taking part in a clinical trial, it is important to discuss the possible benefits and risks.
