The Victorian Research Translation Centres, Monash Partners, Melbourne Academic Centre for Health and Western Alliance are leading an initiative to enable all professionals involved in clinical trials across Victoria access to high quality, world class training. Supported by the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre, Parkville Cancer Clinical Trials Unit, Melbourne Children’s Trials Centre and Alfred Health, the Victorian Clinical Trials Education Centre (V-CTEC) will enable all professionals involved in clinical trials across Victoria access to high quality, world class training at no individual charge.
V-CTEC will see the establishment of 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.
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. Importantly, this includes Victoria’s rural and regional workforce, who often face greater barriers than their metropolitan counterparts in accessing affordable quality clinical trials training opportunities.
The recently commissioned mandatory accreditation process outlined by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, requires health services to support 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, and V-CTEC will align its training offerings to support organisations in meeting these accreditation requirements.
