PlumX metrics:
The number of clinical trials per year carried out in Poland is relatively high, however, the Polish regulations related to performing and funding of clinical trials are not very extensive. The NIK in its audit report conlcuded “a lack of a comprehensive system of regulations concerning conducting, financing and financial control of clinical research”. The National Health Fund is an authority responsible for, among others, planning and purchasing publicly financed health services. The sponsor is obliged to manage and finance clinical trials, however many procedures performed during the research can be classified as standard medical care guaranteed by the Act on health care services financed from public funds.
There is still a need of solving the problem of financing standard health care services being a part of a clinical trial by a proper legal act.
