Free blood pressure checks to celebrate International Clinical Trials day on 20 May
19 May 2015
On the 20 May between 10 am and 4 pm in the Atrium on Level 5, the Bristol Heart Institute will be holding a free 'check your blood pressure event' to help celebrate International Clinical Trials Day and the research the BHI themselves are doing into high blood pressure causes and treatments.
Clinical trials have come a long way since then, and are the best way of proving whether a new treatment is effective. Today clinical trials can involve thousands of participants, and are subject to strict regulation to ensure patient safety.
The BHI will be celebrating ICT day this year with interactive stands throughout the Trust, where staff will be on-hand to explain how research is having an impact on patient care, and offer the opportunity to take part in some of our example "trials" on the day.
