What Should Patients Know About Clinical Trials?

By Adam Pick on May 16, 2017

With all the new heart valve technologies being developed, I’m getting great questions about clinical trials. That said, I just came across a new educational video released by the Alliance for Aging Research that reveals many interesting facts about clinical trials — from the patient perspective.

If you – or someone you love – are considering a clinical trial, I thought you might like to see this video.

 

 

Many thanks to Lindsay Clarke and Sue Peschin at the Alliance for sharing this video with me. And, thanks for your continued support of patients with heart valve disease. So you know, the Alliance was one of the driving forces behind the first National Heart Valve Awareness Day on February 22, 2017.

Keep on tickin!
