TITLE: How to improve clinical trial reporting – insights from Europe and the US
SPEAKER: Dr. Till Bruckner, Research Fellow at the BIH QUEST Center.
About the topic: In this presentation, Dr. Till Bruckner will provide examples of how hidden clinical trial results undermine clinical practice and harm patients, and present concrete examples of how the problem can be fixed in practice. Some regulators, funders and institutions in Europe and the United States have now put systems in place that ensure that every clinical trial is registered and makes its results public – while other players are still dragging their feet. Drawing on years of experience campaigning in Europe and the United States, the presentation will focus on what patients, clinicians, medical researchers and policy makers in Canada can do to build watertight systems to ensure that in future, no clinical trial is left behind.

He is also the founder of TranspariMED, a campaign that works to end evidence distortion in medicine.
