Clinical Trial Assist - facilitating clinical trial recruitment in general practice

Banner Image

A pilot project to prove the concept of recruiting patients for clinical trial through GP awareness and utlilisation of patient records.

This project will identify, develop and evaluate a model to support clinical trials in Australia by providing access to the leading clinical data set in Australia to guide clinical trial protocol development and assess the feasibility of protocols and recruitment. In addition, it will engage the general practice sector and facilitate direct patient recruitment, giving a higher level of awareness for GP's on clinical trials and their benefits. At least two clinical trials will be recruited with additional patients through facilitated engagement with GP's.

Outcomes (FY2020):

  • 52 GP's attended educations sessions and an additional 38 GP practises were engaged with assisted recruitment. 
  • Three clinical trials were assisted with recruitment and 54 individuals recruited in total during the project. 
  • No progress has been made in this work since the project conclusion due to the labour intensive work needed.
