Clinical trials look at new ways to improve diagnosis, treatment and support for people with cancer. While clinical trials are a vital part of healthcare, the decision to participate can be challenging.
We have selected our presenters to share their experiences as patients and health professionals involved in clinical trials. Their knowledge and understanding will:
- provide an introduction to cancer clinical trials,
- explore different channels for reliable information and support,
- help you start the conversation with your doctor to see if you are eligible.
