Dr Linda Biesty & Prof Declan Devane

Health Research Board -Trials Methodology Research Network, Ireland



In this joint MRC-HTMR Network - HRB-TMRN webinar, Dr. Linda Biesty and Prof Declan Devane will share experiences, and fun, of the HRB-Trials Methodology Research Network (HRB-TMRN) 'START – Schools Teaching Awareness of Randomised Trials’ initiative. START helps inform the public, and children in particular, about why randomised trials are important and how they are planned, designed, analysed and reported. START does this by running a unique, national competition in Ireland that challenges primary school children (aged 8-12) to plan, design, conduct, analyse and report their own randomised trial. The competition coincides with International Clinical Trials Day which takes place every year on May 20th, which celebrates the first well documented trial by James Lind in 1747.
