Improving impact of clinical trials through implementability
Clinical trials are expensive and can take many years to complete. Impacts in terms of change in treatment, policy or
behaviour can take many years following trial completion. The Impact and Implementation Reference Group of ACTA offers
some recommendations for optimising impact of clinical trials through improved implementation and strongly encourage
those involved in the planning, conduct and reporting of clinical trials, as well as the implementation of trial results, to
consider improving the implementability characteristics of their trial in order to improve impact.
