Principles of designing clinical trials in palliative care
Clinical practice in palliative care is focused primarily on improving the quality of life for people that are facing advanced and incurable disease. As such, clinical trials are used to test and quantify the benefits and harms of a particular clinical treatment. This chapter discusses the principles of designing clinical trials in palliative care and how to design experimental studies that seek to examine the effects of clinical interventions.
