VCCC Building Capability in Clinical Trials
We are expanding access to clinical trials for palliative care patients attending hospitals involved in the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) alliance, including Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne, Western Health, Austin Health, Royal Melbourne, and the Royal Children’s Hospital.
By increasing clinical trial understanding and capability of clinicians, increasing research activity and simultaneously increasing the number of clinical trials available to palliative care patients - the provision of evidence based best practice care is increased.
We are collaborating with Palliative Care Clinical Studies Collaboratie (PaCCSC) and Cancer Symptom Trials (CST) as investigators on a series of RAPID post marketing/pharmacovigilance and practice intervention monitoring studies.
