Monash-Gippsland Tele-trials Project

Please note this project is temporarily suspended due to the COVID19 outbreak.

The Monash-Gippsland Tele-Trials Pilot aims to increase access to clinical trials for people in the Gippsland Region, and reduce the need for people with cancer to travel to large metropolitan centres in Melbourne to undertake trial-related visits and procedures.

The project will develop collaboration and networking between Latrobe Regional Hospital and Monash Health, contribute to workforce development by building clinical trial capabilities in Gippsland, and improve evidence-based practice in clinical trials by improving the rate of recruitment and participation of patients in clinical trials. This can potentially increase participation in research into cancers with lower rates of incidence or low survival rates.
