GCP, Research Ethics and Governance Standard Operating Procedures (SOP)

The National Teletrials Compendium

The National Teletrials Compendium has now been published on the Commonwealth Department of Health website. The compendium has been agreed to by all states and territories and supports a national approach to teletrials. It consists of two publications:

  • National Standard Operating Procedures for Clinical Trials, including Teletrials in Australia
  • National Principles for Teletrials in Australia

Australian ICH GCP (Including Teletrials) Standard Operating Procedures

This Compendium, including the SOPs, has been developed to incorporate the recommendations from the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia’s (COSA) Australasian Teleā€trial Model – A National Guide to Implementation. We gratefully acknowledge the input and review of these Chapters by our research community particularly the COSA Teletrials Consortium, Medicines Australia and its member organisations, Cooperative Clinical Trial Groups, COSA Queensland Health (QH) advisory group, QH State-Wide Teletrial Working Group, QH State-Wide Cancer Clinical Network and pilots at the Northern Cluster in Queensland and Orange/Dubbo Cluster in New South Wales. We also gratefully acknowledge the input from the Clinical Research Coordinator Network and other State Health jurisdictions, CROs and pharmaceutical company representatives.
