Over the years many improvements in healthcare have been driven by research studies involving patients and the public. ‘What’s research ever done for us?’ will present some of the advances in clinical care that would not have been achieved without studies to find out what provides the best treatment option. It is brought to you by Research4Gloucestershire, a joint initiative between the Gloucestershire health community and the University of Gloucestershire.
The programme will comprise short presentations using examples of important health care developments to illustrate the role of research in improving clinical care for patients. It promises to be a fascinating evening for anybody interested in clinical research, public participation in research, and how such activities can be used to further medical knowledge.
