Addressing Clinical Relevance in Medical Papers
Clinical trials and research should always aim to provide information that is meaningful and relevant for patients.
In the last episode, we looked at how many - or rather - how few researchers mentioned and argued for what they would see as clinically relevant outcomes when setting up a study and listing it on clinicaltrials.gov
In this episode, we go deeper to look at examples and why this is so important to improve the usefulness of the research
We want to make it mandatory to state the researchers' clinical relevance levels ahead of the trial, mentioning what they will consider clinically relevant when they pre-register their research on the clinicaltrials.gov website or similar websites. They then need to compare their findings in both the paper and abstract when publishing data from the study. #clinicalrelevance

GET THE ABSTRACT SCREENING TOOL
It can be a challenge to screen papers for clinical relevance. As we go beyond the abstract in this podcast, we have created a screening tool to use when reading an abstract from a clinical research paper.
Using that tool enables you to quickly screen an abstract from a medical journal for clinical relevance selecting only those you want to read. At the same time, you will know why you skipped the rest. Get it at our website https://www.precision-evidence.com
