AccessCR-CCReW News and Opportunities 27 Sep 22

Just a quick note from me this week. Stay tuned through our socials for an announcement of the opening of expressions of interest for travel support for consumers to an upcoming clinical trials sector conference. I am just finalising details so they are not quote ready for this newsletter, but it won't be long.

It was great to see the NHMRC announce that all publications of its publicly funded research are to be made freely available and accessible. This is a huge win for consumers who will now be able to access the research that they may have participated in or contributed to, or which they want to read to help inform their own care.

It was also interesting to see the Seventy-fifth World Health Assembly approved a new resolution (WHA75.8) on 'Strengthening clinical trials to provide high-quality evidence on health interventions and to improve research quality and coordination'. It's a challenging read, but does highlight the benefits of clinical trials, the value of trial participants and the need for the potential beneficiaries of research to be involved in the conduct of trials (not just as participants). It's a call to action globally to improve clinical trials systems, especially to enable rapid research around emerging health issues such as was necessary for the COVID pandemic.

Until next time, may the world be kind to you.

This is a list of all studies on the ANZCTR approved by a human research ethics committee, recruiting in Australia, with a trial start date between 13-26 Sep 2022 not previously listed here, as at 26 Sep 2022.

We provide the above trial listings as a free service to help people know what studies have recently started that they or someone they know could have an interest in. Please contact researchers directly through the listings as we have no connection/involvement with these studies.

If you are a researcher that wants to let people know about your recruiting trial here, please contact us (first listing free, subsequent listings for a fee).

We love to hear your stories as trial participants, consumers involved in research or the carers and family that help support people do either. It helps us promote your good works, uncover areas for improvement, and inspire others as to what is possible.

Feel free to email us, give us a call, or share your story in any other way you'd like to with us.

Ever wondered what it's like being part of a phase 1 trial? Check out the diary of a trial participant, shared with us a while back and available on the AccessCR Knowledge page.
