About the topic: In this presentation, Dr. Till Brucker will provide examples of how hidden clinical trials results undermine clinical practice and harm patients, and present concrete examples of how the problem can be fixed in practice. Some regulators, funders and institutions in Europe and the United States have now put systems in place that ensure that every clinical trial is registered and makes its results public - while other players are still dragging their feet. Drawing on years of experience campaigning in Europe and the United States, the presentation will focus on what patients, cliniciams, medical researchers and policy makers in Canada can do to build watertight systems to ensure that in the future, no clinical trial is left behind.
