Your doctor or nurse may suggest you take part in a clinical trial. Doctors run clinical trials to test new or modified treatments to see if they are better than current methods. Clinical trials may help improve palliative care and the management of common symptoms of advanced cancer.
If you decide to take part in a trial, you can withdraw at any time. For more information, see Cancer Council’s Understanding Clinical Trials and Research booklet or visit australiancancertrials.gov.au.
