In May 2015, Trevor Butterworth, Director of Sense About Science USA, interviewed Ben Goldacre and Síle Lane to talk about the history of the AllTrials campaign.
The full transcript from the interview can be found here.
In the interview, Ben Goldacre concludes: “There is a huge, inevitable policy trajectory towards greater transparency throughout the whole of society and in clinical medicine. It’s going to happen with clinical trials, and it’s going to happen retrospectively, including the results of the past. There is no doubt. It’s no longer sustainable to resist. The people who do it fastest and best will take a prize; and those leaders will be truly improving patient care, whether they’re from industry or academia.”
