From the Executive Director: Access to online training to revolutionise clinical trials

The recently endorsed and mandatory accreditation process outlined by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care requires health services to provide effective clinical governance and improve the safety and quality of care for those involved in clinical trials. Education, training and competencies are key components of achieving this.

Monash Partners is working to support all our health service partners in accreditation in Clinical Research Governance. This includes a state-wide partnership to lead an initiative to transform professional development in the clinical trial space, led by Monash Partners, Melbourne Academic Centre for Health and Western Alliance, additionally supported by the Parkville Cancer Clinical Trials Unit, Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Consortium, Melbourne Children’s Trials Centre and Alfred Health..

The Victorian Clinical Trials Education Centre (V-CTEC) is a not-for-profit, Victoria wide, member-based education centre, with a dedicated Learning Management System (LMS) hosting a suite of evidence-based, interactive clinical trials education opportunities suitable for a range of learning needs.

It enables all professionals involved in clinical trials across Victoria access to high quality, world class training at no cost to the end user.

V-CTEC aligns its training offerings to support organisations in meeting accreditation requirements and builds clinical research capacity in Victoria, supporting health services with implementation of the National Clinical Trials Governance Framework.

It also provides Victoria’s rural and regional workforce, who often face greater barriers than their metropolitan counterparts, the opportunity to access affordable quality clinical trials training opportunities.

The training available through V-CTEC will be valuable for: investigators, study coordinators, research nurses and clinical trial assistants, clinical trial pharmacists, Human Research Ethics Committee and governance officers, clinical and non-clinical research staff, general staff in departments that interact with clinical trials, employees involved in clinical trials from hospitals, community health settings, universities, and any location where clinical trial research is undertaken.

Monash Partners welcomes this opportunity to collaborate to address such a significant priority for our health and research community.
