There are many ways to find out about a clinical trial or other study.
- Most specialists know about current studies and may recommend a suitable study to you.
- If your hospital has a clinical trials or research nurse, you can also ask them about any studies that might be suitable for you.
- Hospital and treatment centre waiting rooms often have information about current studies.
- Search clinical trial websites.
- Hear about trials through patient support groups and in the general media.
If there isn’t a suitable study now, you can register with some organisations to be informed of future studies.
If you find a trial you’re interested in joining, ask your doctor whether they could find out more about the trial and whether they could coordinate your involvement or put you in touch with the research team.
