ClinTrial Refer (CTR)
Clin Trial Refer is a mobile app and website platform that helps connect doctors and patients to current clinical trial opportunities.
CTR is a not for profit founded by Professor Judith Trotman (Haematologist, Concord Hospital NSW) and Ms Roslyn Ristuccia (Clinical Research Manager, St George Hospital NSW). It is an evidence-based tool that is being rapidly adapted for use in a variety of disciplines.
There are currently 26 ClinTrial Refer Apps across multiple specialties including, Prostate Cancer (ANZUP), Melanoma (ANZMTG and MIA), Radiation Oncology (TROG) and Breast Cancer. With funding support from MTPConnect ClinTrial Refer launched an upgraded version of the platform in 2019 which delivers an integrated solution for housing all the apps (specialities) and recruiting trials into one database. The App is free to public access and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Australian Clinical Trials Alliance- Involvement tool kit
The Clinical Trials Alliance Toolkit contains a small but growing collection of dedicated resources for consumers and the community, that provide insights into what it means to become ‘involved’ in research and to increase awareness around the role and value of clinical trials.
As a platform for the sharing of information and tools, the Toolkit aims to improve public awareness and understanding of clinical trials so that consumers and the community are better equipped to influence the clinical trial agenda.
Developed by Australian Clinical Trial Alliance & CT:IQ, the Toolkit page also contains patient participation and informational videos such as ” What are clinical trials”.
