A Patient Voice in Clinical Trial Development?

As many of you may already know, a clinical trial is a research study that tests how safe and effective a new treatment, diagnostic test, or other medical intervention is. This type of medical research is often started in a laboratory and sometimes tested on animals. Clinical trials in humans are one of the final stages of this research to ensure everything works as the researchers had intended.

But there are many parts to the design and planning of a clinical trial, which begs the question:

Should patients be involved in the planning of clinical trials?

And if so, where do you think patient feedback could have the biggest impact on how research is conducted?
