The South East Wales Trials Unit (SEWTU) based in the Centre for Trials Research at Cardiff University is funded by Welsh Government through Health and Care Research Wales. The unit conducts trials in the areas of behaviour change, children and young people, and infections, as well as medical devices and the older person, and is willing to consider any well-designed trial or study idea.
Our portfolio of previous and current work covers diverse topics from pharmaceutical trials to the evaluation of complex interventions. We currently have studies in the clinical areas of primary care, paediatric diabetes and gastroenterology, with interventions which range from the complex to medicinal products.
We also conduct methodological research around outcomes measures, including the development of new patient reported outcomes and investigations into the impact of different approaches to collecting data from patients on their responses. We are currently running studies across Wales, the UK and Europe.
