Panel Discussion: Patient and Public Involvement in Clinical Trials in India
International Clinical Trials Day | Panel Discussion: Patient and Public Involvement in Clinical Trials in India
Clinical trials are important tools to generate evidence about the safety and benefit of medical interventions- be it a drug, device, or vaccine. Although advancement in science is beginning to change the way we understand health care, it is still lagging in involving patients and the public in their own healthcare decisions including in the clinical trials.

Patients and the public continue to be regarded as a source of data and not as the true protagonists in the clinical trial process. Even though initiatives have been taken in recent years to change this situation, quite often the efforts have remained tokenistic- defeating the whole purpose of their meaningful involvement. The deep-seated power imbalance in society also impacts equitable patients and public involvement in clinical trials.

To mark the International Clinical Trials Day, The George Institute is organising a panel discussion to expand the awareness about the importance of patient and public involvement in clinical trials and include stakeholders’ perspectives in involving patients and the public throughout a clinical trial.
