Randomized controlled trials are the ideal study design to evaluate the effectiveness of health-care interventions. The conduct of a clinical trial is a collaborative effort between participants, investigators and a range of health-care professionals involved both centrally and locally in the coordination and execution of the trial. In this article, the key steps that are required to design a randomized controlled trial are summarized.
