The Australian Government, through Cancer Australia is supporting Australia’s capacity to develop industry-independent cancer clinical trials. This includes multi-site collaborative cancer Cooperative Trials Groups (CTGs) and the National Technical Services.

Cancer CTGs
National Technical Services

GCCTI is one of the three technical services funded by Cancer Australia for multi-site collaborative CTGs under the Support for Cancer Clinical Trials Program. The other two are:

CREST provides the CTGs with high quality, expert advice, and technical services relating to the consistent inclusion of appropriate health and pharmaco-economic measures or sub-studies into all new industry-independent cancer clinical trials protocols developed.

These services assist the CTGs to incorporate appropriate health and pharmaco-economic analyses into new cancer clinical trials leading to greater economic evidence for future decision-making.

 

CQUEST provides the CTGs with access to high quality, expert advice, and technical support services relating to the consistent inclusion of appropriate patient-reported outcome and health-related quality of life measures or sub-studies into all new industry-independent cancer clinical trial protocols developed.

A diagnosis of cancer and its treatment has considerable impact on the quality-of-life of individuals, their families and carers. Incorporation of patient-reported outcome and health-related quality of life measures or sub-studies into all new clinical trials helps identify effective interventions which can improve cancer outcomes whilst ensuring that the patient impact of new or modified interventions is assessed and understood.
