What are the barriers and limitations to enrolling patients into clinical research in Canada?

As Cardiovascular physicians in Canada, we strive to provide the best possible care to our patients. A cornerstone of our belief is that all patients should have equal access to care, regardless of their geographical location or size of local health care facility. One of the determinants of health care in modern medicine is the access to enrollment in novel clinical research trials.

Unfortunately, there is great disparity present in a patients’ access to currently enrolling clinical trials primarily based upon their location, and whether their local health care facility is an academic or community hospital. We seek to understand the current barriers and limitations to enrolling patients into clinical research in Canada. We also seek to understand the level of knowledge of physicians in how clinical research operates, both through a structural and financial model. Please take a moment to answer the questions in our survey.
