Why are we involved in research activity?
Gaining vital new knowledge, which can have widespread benefits for patients now and in the future, is an outcome of delivering a well-designed clinical study. Investigation of the causes and courses of health problems and disease, how best to treat them, the knowledge and understanding will extended to increased benefits for all patients. This is also a way of building a body of evidence that can lead to positive change for future care.
