Australian Clinical Trials
The Australian Clinical Trials Consumer Guide to Clinical Trials states that clinical trials are medical research studies that aim to find a better way to manage a particular disease. The purpose of a clinical trial is to evaluate new approaches to learn how people respond to them and what side effects might occur as a result. Clinical trials are considered to be part of best practice medicine and are one of many options for treatment of a disease or illness.
The Australian Government National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) website includes information for consumers about clinical trials including phases of clinical trials, how clinical trials work, who can be part of a clinical trial and types of clinical trials. To find out more about how clinical trials work, see NHMRC Australian Clinical Trials.
