communication during recruitment to clinical trials of cancer
Project aims and objectives
The Primary aims of this study are:-
This will be achieved by first collecting information about patients' and clinicians' attitudes towards trials together with patients' preferences for information via specially designed questionnaires. This information will provide the necessary background which will be needed for our proposed intervention to improve communication and ultimately accrual of patients in randomised and non-randomised clinical trials.
