Clinical Trials Centre
Clinical trials are a type of research involving human volunteers dedicated to offering new and emerging treatment options to patients with various illnesses and diseases. The purpose of a clinical trial is to evaluate new approaches in treating medical conditions or diseases under controlled conditions. This involves determining how well people respond to new treatments, what side effects there are, how well they are tolerated or whether the new intervention is better than those that are already available. The conduct of high-quality clinical trials is not only essential in the development of new medicines and medical devices, but they are also necessary to find new uses for existing medicines.
The Clinical Trials Centre at Wesley Medical Research focuses on giving hope and changing lives by enabling patient participation in national and international phase I-IV clinical trials with a focus on evaluating new therapies, drugs, and diagnostic tools to drive discoveries into standard clinical practice. Engaged across four hospitals – The Wesley Hospital, St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital, Buderim Private Hospital and St Stephen’s (Hervey Bay) – clinicians and patients located in both metropolitan and regional areas can participate.
Our patients are at the heart of all we do and that’s why Wesley Medical Research focuses on providing participants, researchers, and sponsors with a first-class, professional experience. Our dedicated staff strive for a reputation of integrity and quality, delivering a warm, caring and inviting environment for all participants.
