Webinar: Unlocking the mysteries of Clinical Trials
Held on 26 June 2020 at 11:00-11:45am AEST
In our first Living Room Series webinar, we discussed clinical trials and how they actually work: from a spark of inspiration to enrolling patients. The webinar was hosted by Dr Lorraine Chantrill, Head of Medical Oncology, Wollongong Hospital and Chair, GI Cancer Institute with Professor Chris Karapetis, Medical Oncologist, Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer.
Our hosts drew on their wealth of expertise to discuss how COVID-19 has impacted clinical trials and the care of patients. They also discussed what it actually means to get a clinical trial going and the potential impact on trials at this time and they took a look at hopes and plans for the future to find cures for patients with Gastro-Intestinal (GI) cancer.
