The MRC-NIHR Trials Methodology Research Partnership would like to raise awareness and understanding of 'What is Trials Methodology Research?' by describing some examples and providing resources.
Trials Methodology Research has improved the design, conduct and analysis of clinical trials for the benefit of participants, researchers, and others who use the evidence to make decisions about healthcare.
The document below illustrates several examples of how Trials Methodology Research is making it easier for patients to take part, helping improve patient decision making, helping measure what matters, gathering reliable evidence more quickly and making trials more acceptable especially in challenging situations.
Trials Methodology Research is increasingly drawing upon the active involvement of patients and the public in its work.
