Looking back on a report produced by ANZCTR for 2005-2015, it provides a comprehensive assessment of clinical trial activity in Australia. The Australian Government has made large contributions towards the clinical research scene since 2005. The ANZCTR has done a magnificent job in promoting clinical trials. ClinTrial Refer is honored to be a contributing factor in helping in this regard (for more details download the document and read page 2).

The ClinTrial Refer SHP App was successfully launched on the 18th of October 2017 at the annual SHP forum.

The Sydney Health Partners ClinTrial app is the first to include trials from a range of different disciplines - including cardiology, neurology, gastroenterology, psychiatry - rather than being specific to one type of cancer.

Held on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 October 2017 at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park, this unique stat​ewide gathering showcased local innovation that has made a difference to patient care across New South Wales. Around 1000 clinicians, consumers, academics, Board members and managers from health services, non-government and professional organisations came together to share expertise, celebrate achievement and look towards the future.
