Clinical trials are an important part of the treatment of blood cancers, and for some people can offer access to new treatments that aren’t available routinely. Some people may be invited to participate in a clinical trial by their healthcare team, and some may like to raise the question of suitability for clinical trials themselves. Either way, participating in a trial can be both a considered decision and a welcome opportunity.
In this webinar, our panel of expert speakers will discuss what it is important to know about clinical trials, what questions to ask your team, how to consider the risks and benefits, and how you can be supported to make decisions around taking part in clinical trials.
You will also hear from individuals who have participated in trials, what helped them to make their decision to participate and what their experience was like.
We will be joined by
- Professor Peter Hillmen, Consultant Clinical Haematologist, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
- Emma Williams, Haematology Research Nurse Manager at University Hospital of Wales
- Katie- living with blood cancer
- Jackie – living with blood cancer
Date: Friday 18th June
Topic: Supporting you to make decisions around clinical trials
