(20 May 2015)

The International Clinical Trials Day will take place on Wednesday 20th May 2015.

An annual event, the date is chosen in recognision of James Lind, who is widely accepted to have conducted the first clinical trial. The day is used to promote clinical research to patients and the public, with the NIHR leading an "It's okay to ask about clinical research" to encourage engagement with clinical trials.
