Workshop: Getting all clinical trials registered (21 March)

How can universities, hospitals and public bodies ensure that all clinical trials are prospectively registered?

Registering clinical trials before they begin is a global ethics requirement under the Declaration of Helsinki. In the UK, committing to prospectively register a trial has been a formal condition of ethics approval since 2013.

Nonetheless, despite significant improvements in recent years in the UK, Germany and elsewhere, a substantial minority of trials are still being registered late or not at all.

Trial registration failures are bad news for patients and for science - and for investigators themselves, because major medical journals now refuse to publish trials that were not properly registered.

Getting to 100% registration

But how can research institutions ensure that all investigators consistently do the right thing?

A free online workshop convened by the UK Health Research Authority will allow institutions to explore and discuss potential solutions with their peers. The workshop is open to participants from outside the UK.

Date: Thursday 21 March

Time: 13:00-16:00 UK time (14:00-17:00 CET)
