Patient and public involvement in the study

Patient and public involvement and dissemination

We have two ‘lay members’, who are former patients, on our Trial Steering Committee, which directs the trial and examines it from lots of different perspectives.  They were also involved in the design of the trial and assessing what should or 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.
