The Launceston General Hospital Diabetes and Renal Research Unit, three Principal Investigators and one 4 Investigator. We have two Nurse Study Coordinators and one Administrative Study Coordinator.
We are situated in the Clifford Craig Research Trust of The Launceston General Hospital with several other research units. All endocrinologists, nephrologists and general physicians who work at this public hospital also have private rooms close by, and service a large area of North, North West, East and Central Tasmania, so we recruit patients from both the private and public sector.
We have access to all the facilities you would expect of a public teaching hospital, including, Pharmacy, Radiology, Renal Unit, and a Pathology who process and ship all our trials samples. They have all the qualifications and certifications that are required by sponsors for clinical trials.
All Site staff maintain their current GCP training, and have in excess of ten years experience in clinical trials in the diabetes and renal area.
The Tasmanian Health and Medical Human Research Ethics Committee review all our Clinical Trials. Non-substantial amendments are often reviewed by the Ethics Executive Officer in which case the approval process takes only one to two weeks. Substantial amendments go to the full committee meetings which occur monthly except for December, in which case the review process can take up to 5 weeks. If amendments have prior approval from an approved Ethics Committee, the process is considerably quicker. The fact that our site has an administrative coordinator means that all administrative processes, including data entry and review are attended to more promptly than most sites.
The site has never been audited by a regulatory authority.
