International Clinical Trials Day

22/05/2014

The Trust held a series of events on Clinical Trials Day on 20th May, promoting the fact that it is ‘Ok to ask’ about clinical research, a campaign which was launched by the HSC R&D Division.

The ‘Ok to ask’ campaign raises public awareness of the benefits of HSC research and encourage patients to ask their health care professionals about research that is taking place, that might be applicable to them.

International Clinical Trials Day provided a focal point to raise awareness of the importance of research to healthcare, and highlight how partnerships between patients and healthcare practitioners are vital to high-quality, relevant research.
