Clinical research is the way in which evidence is gathered in order to improve treatments for patients. It plays an important role in fueling innovation, improving quality and enabling patient access to potential new treatments.
Healthcare professionals can access a range of supports to facilitate their involvement in clinical research as follows:
- Register as a HRB NCTO investigator member so you are promptly informed of new study feasibility assessments within your area of clinical interest.
- Link with fellow clinicians and scientists in your area of clinical interest through the Clinical Research Networks.
- Link with specialist research staff at your local Clinical Research Centre or Facility. The partner CRF/Cs provide the infrastructure, physical space and facilities, experienced research and specialist support staff and the necessary quality and oversight programs that are critical for the successful conduct of world-class patient-focused research.
- HRB NCTO can provide a range of services to support you in delivery of your research study or clinical trial.
HRB NCTO and the CRF/Cs facilitate research but are not in a position to independently fund research.
