Although a large number of initiatives to facilitate the conduct of clinical trials are underway, none matches the potential of randomized registry trials. Randomized-registry trials combine data from a dedicated registry with data from administrative health databases. The latter is used to gather follow-up information and compare the efficacy and safety of assigned treatments. Randomized-registry trials considerably reduced the operational burden and do not interfere with true medical practice and the natural history of the disease. Randomized-registry trials, however, have their limitations, and some of their strengths and weaknesses are specific to the provinces/jurisdictions in which they are performed.

Learning Objectives:

1. To understand the importance of validating health administrative databases before using it for clinical trials.

2. To discuss how randomized registry trials can be used to democratize the process of research in Canada.
