For: Members of the public who are interested in how clinical trials are designed and analysed.

What: Clinical trials are vital to medical research. However, any clinical trial just looks at a sample of patients, so it may occasionally conclude a treatment works when it doesn’t (false positive), or a treatment doesn’t work when it does (false negative). The University of Bristol need you to help them decide what balance of false positives and negatives is acceptable to the public.

When: The first meeting is likely to be held in early June 2019, with further meetings every 8-9 months until the end of the research project in late 2022.

Where: All meetings will be held in central Bristol. Transport/parking can be arranged.

Payment: Travel or out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed and you will be paid £21.57 per hour to attend meetings.
