Clinical Trials in Australia

According to the National Health and Medical Research Council – NHMRC clinical trials across Australia are in the following categories:

– treatment trials to test new treatments, new medicines or combinations of medicines; or other new therapies such as surgery, the use of new medical devices or new approaches to surgery

– diagnostic or screening trials to evaluate tests or procedures to diagnose and detect diseases or conditions

– prevention trials to test new ways to prevent disease including medicines, vaccines, vitamins, or changes to diet, lifestyle or behaviour

Clinical trials in Australia need to be efficiently administrated and resourced with qualified healthcare professionals as well as suitable patients.
