The AustralianClinicalTrials.com website is an initiative of Datapharm Australia with the aim "to make (Australian) clinical trials more accessible & easier to complete"...and to make studies "high-quality low-cost".
There is not an obligation for companies to promote their clinical trials on our website, we can only encourage that they are for the purpose of making clinical research more accessible. If you cannot find a study on our website that you have seen somewhere else, please let us know! here>>>
Note that depending on the research or clinical trial in practice, public promotion and advertising may not be appropriate to the project. So it is more likely that unless you need to you will not know about it. That is, there may be very specific in patient studies, based in a particular clinic or limited number of clinics.
The biggest challenge for clinical trials is awareness. If I asked you about breast cancer research, you will probably think pink ribbons and fun runs...but you probably wouldn't know about practical ways to find out about clinical trials in breast cancer. Same would apply to the millions who participated in the ice bucket challenge. Some patient advocate groups on social media now are often ahead of the industry when it comes to connecting relevant patient populations to the latest and current research. This is a job for everyone and doesn't really stop at a website or initiative...it really encompasses everyone on all levels.
If you are passionate about raising awareness of clinical trials get in touch today...actually sign up for our newsletter
(and share it to friends to share to friends...this alone could have a bigger impact than you would think)...Like our social channels and share and follow and like repeat... you might save a life in the process...no joke!
What we do for patients/people
Our aim is to assist potential clinical trial volunteers find out about research that may be of interest to them.
What we do for Sponsors
We help Sponsors right the way through from clinical trial setup to final study report. Many Sponsor's of new innovative products are actually virtual companies which need the CRO support for rolling out the clinical trials.
What we do for Investigator sites
We aim to identify, support and nurture existing clinical trial sites. No other website offers free public profiles to showcase site capabilities. We assist sites with promoting their clinical trials, where they can receive referrals direct from targeted advertising (or through a supported phone centre).
What we do for the greater good
Our purpose is to provide value at every point in the clinical development process. Fact: without the 'development' part of "research & development", that is the necessary clinical trials, new therapies or new cures will simply not make it to the end user, the patients, the people, us. Therefore we aim to make this process as efficient as possible for researchers to GET STUDIES DONE!
Whilst we offer many free services & support to clinical trial sites, and to those running research studies at other levels, we offer many services that go beyond these functions to support clinical trials, patient engagement, patient recruitment and educating relevant parties old and new in their roles and evolving responsibilities in clinical research.
We also actively seek other like-minded companies who wish to support our initiative. If you would like to become a supporter, Sponsor, advertise, or do something more (a research project perhaps? or patient engagement campaign, run meetups in your local area) through AustralianClinicalTrials.com contact us here to make it happen. This website has been set-up with Datapharm Australia resources, and any support from external parties to assist is welcomed and encouraged.
