What would make you take part in a clinical trial?
01/04/2017

Researchers at Lancaster University would like to know your opinion on how clinical trials should be run, and what would make you more likely to take part in one, so they can improve the experience of being on a trial

Clinical trials are an essential part of medical research. They help to find new tests and treatments for all kinds of health problems, including high blood pressure and the illnesses it causes. They can involve filling in questionnaires and agreeing to share your medical records confidentially with the research team, or taking a new treatment to see how well it works. In fact, medical research couldn’t progress without the people who take part. 

Researchers at Lancaster University want to find out what makes people more likely to take part in a clinical trial, so they can encourage more people to get involved, and what makes for a good experience on a trial – so they can find ways to improve how studies are designed and run. 

They have developed a short survey to help find the answers. Anyone can complete it. You don’t need to have taken part in a trial before or be involved in one now, and they would like to hear from you whether or not you have a health problem or have had one in the past. 

Read what the team at Lancaster University say about the survey, or go straight to the survey. The survey will be open until mid to late June.
