How can randomised trials become part of routine care and best utilise current clinical care pathways?

This question is about how might trials co-exist, routinely, alongside routine clinical care. Research is often viewed by clinicians as an extra burden or an added strain on already limited resources, rather than something that (should) co-exist alongside routine care.
  • “How can we engage relevant clinicians in designing studies to cultivate a culture of clinical trials as part of the duty and routine workload of health professionals, many of whom see it as extra work or a burden?”
  • “How can we better embed trials in routine healthcare so that trials are seen as routine rather than complex bolt-ons?”
  • “It would be good if we could embed trials into routine healthcare so that it would be the norm to be in a trial (when indicated) rather than something out of the ordinary”
