National Network of Research Sites

AusTrials has a network of primary care centres across Australia where, performing the function of a site management organisation (SMO), we have established the necessary infrastructure, human resources and facilities to conduct research within these centres.

The benefits of our SMO research model include:

  • Large patient numbers. Access to over 1000 physicians in more than 70 medical centres, with each centre seeing between 2000-4000 patients every week.
  • Centralised Coordination. AusTrials coordinates all aspects of study feasibility, site selection, collection of ethics and regulatory documents, SIV and investigator training across all our sites.
  • Ethics simplified. With many years’ experience in ethics applications for multisite applications, we manage the ethics approval process efficiently.
  • General Practice setting. Conducting your research in the GP setting provides access to clinicians with suitable patient numbers.
  • Quality research. We provide a coordinating Investigator review and rigorous quality oversight at all our sites.
  • Project management of the on-site study coordinator resources, including KPI driven management and coaching, to deliver recruitment targets.

AusTrials runs complex data extraction algorithms to identify patients for studies – searching diagnoses, medication history, pathology results, other measurements and referrals to create lists of suitable patients for recall.
