Let’s Talk T1D Education Series: Clinical Trials
Tuesday, March 26, 2024 7:00pm EST (French) 8:00pm EST (English)
Where: Microsoft Teams (a link will be sent after registration)
Who: Moderated by JDRF and featuring representatives from JDRF Canada, clinical trial participants and researchers
As part of our ongoing Let’s Talk T1D Education Series, this virtual event will provide information on the participation in clinical trials for T1D research in Canada. The event is free and there is no cost to attend.
Clinical trials are an essential stage of the research process and are the only way to investigate safety, tolerability, and efficacy of new potential therapies and treatments.
Any treatment that is being developed for eventual use in the clinic must first be tested in a clinical trial. This can include drugs, devices, virtual care platforms, behavioural therapy, education, and more. Without them, medications or therapies that could improve quality of life may never reach the people who could benefit from them the most.
Presented by Lara Green, PhD (National Manager of Research & Training Programs, JDRF Canada), we will also be joined by Aude Bandini, who lives with T1D and has participated in many clinical trials and Adam Khalif, MSc., Research Assistant, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) who supports youth behavioural trials in pediatric endocrinology.
They will share about their experiences and answer any questions you might have.
This event is open to everyone, including those already participating in clinical trials.
