Consultation on “good practice” processes for governance and authorisation of clinical trials in Australia (2014)

Consultation on “good practice” processes for governance and authorisation of clinical trials in Australia (2014)

In support of the Government’s 2013 commitment to prioritising and accelerating clinical trials reforms, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) engaged HealthConsult to conduct a national consultation process with researchers, industry, governments, public and private sector organisations to develop a ‘Good Practice’ Process for the Governance and Authorisation of Clinical Trials in public and private hospitals.  This includes streamlined and timely ethics approval, and expedited site assessment and authorisation processes for clinical trials.  This project commenced in May 2014 and was completed in September 2014.
