In the new episode of the Drug Safety Matters podcast, explore the problem of the data we don't see and find out what can be done to peel back the curtain.

Clinical trials are the “gold standard” of evidence-based medicine – the best way we have to test whether a drug is safe and effective before it enters the market. But if trial data is poorly reported or – even worse – left unpublished, how are we supposed to determine the true value of a medical treatment?

Peter Doshi, associate editor at The BMJ and founder of the Restoring Invisible and Abandoned Trials (RIAT) Support Center, has made it his mission to fix the problem and improve data transparency for good.
