I’ve made a change in the blogroll, the list of websites and online resources that appear on the right side of the home page. Clicking the link labeled RESEARCH: Congenital Heart Defect Clinical Trials now takes you to a page maintained by Medpedia.
This change was made for two reasons: Medpedia offers summaries of Clinical Trials in either “Plain English” (easy to read) or “Clinical” (More technically correct, but uses a lot of medical terms that you might not be familiar with). Medpedia also offers you a lot of search options: You can search for a clinical trial based on location, actively recruiting participants (or not), Clinical Trial Phase, age of the participants, and other factors. If there is a clinical trial studying retired 70-year-old left-handed tugboat captains, you can find it!
I’ve preset the words Congenital and Heart as the search terms, but feel free to change them if you wish.
