MRC Festival 2018 Symposium on Communicating Trial Results

28 Jun 2018

Clinical trial results have the potential to improve outcomes for patients, and can have direct implications for policy and practice. Often trial results are not shared as effectively as they could be with the audiences that could make a difference for patients.

The MRC Festival Symposium on Communicating Trial Results aimed to share examples of good practice, challenges and solutions around communicating the results of clinical trials, and to foster future collaboration. The MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL hosted the symposium, in partnership with the Association of Medical Research Charities.

With presentations, workshops, and lively discussion, attendees discussed the best ways to communicate the results of clinical trials to trial participants, patients, the clinical community and policymakers.

There were presentations and sessions with input from the Health Research Authority, Prostate Cancer UK, i-Base, the NCRI Consumer Forum, the MS Society and members of the MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL.
