The purpose of this NNLM Resource Picks presentation is to familiarize participants with ClinicalTrials.gov, a National of Library of Medicine database that provides patients, their family members, health care professionals, researchers, and the public with easy access to information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies on a wide range of diseases and conditions. This presentation will help you learn how to navigate the site and understand the nuances and limitations of information available on ClinicalTrials.gov.
