16. What happens at the end of a trial?


At the end of a trial the results will be available to everyone who took part. Once the trial has finished, the results are often presented at research meetings and published in medical and scientific journals so others doctors, healthcare professionals and researchers in other locations and countries can use the information to help their patients.

Remember no information about any particular person that took part in the study (for example, their name or address) is presented at a meeting or printed in a journal.
