Improving patient outcomes through research
- Thursday, 11 May 2017
GenesisCare is championing research and celebrating its passionate clinical teams and patients involved in trials this International Clinical Trials Day.
Commemorated on or near 20 May, International Clinical Trials Day marks the day James Lind began what is believed to be the world's first controlled clinical trial against the deadly disease scurvy. In 1747, he developed the theory that citrus fruits cured scurvy and the results of his trial saved the lives of thousands of sailors.
Fast forward to 2017, life expectancy has improved dramatically, attributable to advances in science, medical research and public health policies.i
GenesisCare Chief Medical Officer Dr Nathaniel Heiner said research underpinned our ability to deliver world-class treatment to our patients.
