  • ClinicalTrials.gov / July 2014 (Recording | Presentation (PPT) | Presentation (PDF))

    Presenter: Kate Flewelling, Outreach Coordinator, NN/LM MAR

    Description: ClinicalTrials.gov was launched in 2000 by the National Library of Medicine.  In 2008, as a result of Section 801 of the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007, ClinicalTrials.gov was expanded to include basic results reporting, including adverse effects.  Due to reporting bias, results reported in ClinicalTrials.gov may not be published anywhere else.  This presentation will provide an overview of this resource and how librarians can use the site to support clinicians, researchers and consumers.  The presentation will also briefly describe the various types and phases of clinical trials and the background and current status of trial registration and reporting.
