MRC : Katie Mellor : MR/N013468/1 Randomised controlled trials allocate people, at random (by chance), to receive an intervention e.g. a specific drug or treatment, to see how effective different interventions are. These types of studies provide the best evidence about the effectiveness (and harms) of health care interventions and ensure that health care decisions are made based on good quality evidence. However, randomised controlled trials can be very complicated and expensive to run. To ensure that research can be most effective and make the best use of our limited resources, sometimes researchers conduct smaller pilot and feasibility studies before they deci...
