Do you know what a clinical trial is?

February 28th, 2018

Do you know what a clinical trial is? If you are interested, you’ll find some videos below, designed for kids, so easy to understand!

It’s curious that in other countries than in Spain (where I live), clinical trials are very popular (eg. USA, Poland), probably because of the fact that public health is not so cheap. If a patient participated in a clinical trial, treatment is for free (otherwise an oncologic treatment can cost thousand of dollars/euros). Also, in the US clinical trials are widely advertised at all levels (TV, radio, newspapers, internet), so a patient can even look for appropriate trials to their disease and check what hospitals are running studies to be involved.

I learned that in the US many colleagues in our field, who have kids, go to schools and show kids where all those fantastic medicines that cure the fever come from. I found a video for kids that is really interesting.

I really think a clinical trial can save your life. Agree? :-) Please share!

Enjoy!
