Patient and public involvement in the study

Patient and public involvement and dissemination

Two ‘lay members’, former patients, sat on our Trial Steering Committee, to help direct the trial and examine it from different perspectives.  They were also involved in the design of the trial and assessing what should and should not be included.

The findings (results) of the trial will be published in academic journals and related at scientific meetings.  If it is discovered that the drug being tested is effective, this could change the way that doctors treat patients with throat problems that do not easily get better.
