For lymphoma & CLL patients, clinical trials can provide access to new treatments not otherwise available in Canada, through rigorous and extensive designs to ensure safety and effectiveness. In this presentation, a representative from Clinical Trials Ontario will highlight what clinical trials are, important considerations when enrolling in a new study, and how to access trials in Canada. Please note that this webinar will focus on providing a general overview of clinical trials, with a few examples of how lymphoma & CLL patients can access novel treatments.
