Particular areas of interest or experience in cardiovascular trial design and delivery
York Trials Unit has a strong reputation and expertise for doing large pragmatic trials of complex interventions. We have experience of numerous trial designs including: placebo controlled drug trials, open label drug studies, individually randomised pragmatic trials of complex interventions, cluster randomised trials, stepped wedge trials, factorial trials, patient preference trials, randomised consent designs and Trials within Cohorts (TWICS). We have approximately 100 staff and cover all the methodological areas needed for supporting large trials including: statistics, trial co-ordination/management, health economics, data management, Public and Patient Involvement and qualitative research. We are a UKCRC registered clinical trials unit and we are also one of the Royal College of Surgeons registered trials units. Clinically areas where we have supported trials include: surgery, rehabilitation and pre-habilitation, therapist interventions and placebo controlled drug trials. In cardiovascular treatments we have and are supporting trials in wound care (chronic and surgical wounds), cardiac rehabilitation, rapid access chest pain clinics, morphine for patients with chronic heart failure and oxygen for patients with heart failure. For these trials we have undertaken their design, supported their conduct (trial and data management) and undertaken the statistical, health economic and qualitative analysis. We have a close relationship with the Cardiovascular health research group in the Department, which houses the National Audit of Cardiac Rehabilitation (led by Doherty).
