What is a clinical trial?

A clinical trial is a research study carried out by scientists and doctors to find out ifa new treatment, intervention, or test is safe and effective in people. This couldinvolve a new drug, diet, or medical device, and the trial will compare the effects of

the new treatment with another, existing, treatment.

For the study to take place, people are asked to volunteer to become participantsin trial. Depending on the trial, the people involved may be patients, healthypeople, or both.

Why would I take part in a clinical trial?

Evidence shows that hospitals that are active in research and deliver clinicalresearch trials and studies have better patient outcomes.

Patients admitted to these research hospitals have more confidence in the clinicalstaff and are better informed about their condition and medical care.

Some reasons given by participants in clinical trials explaining why they decided toparticipate in and contribute to research:

  • To help others (including family members who may potentially develop the
  • same condition)
  • To add to the body of information available for patients
  • To receive the newest treatment
  • To receive additional care and support from the clinical research staff
  • To help advance medical knowledge
