Understanding Clinical Trials

Understanding Clinical Trials is an 8-part program that aims to help you understand what happens in a clinical trial and why they are an important part in developing new therapies. The program has been created with the help of patients, their loved ones and patient groups.

In this eight-part series, we debunk common myths about clinical trials including:

  • Trial volunteers are guinea pigs
  • Being in a clinical trial costs a lot and isn’t covered by medical insurance
  • Trials contain painful or unpleasant parts
