New trial Methodologies – Registry Trials and Teletrials

Monday Lunch Livestream with Dr Vanessa Wong and Ms Kylie Shackleton

Join Dr Vanessa Wong (Clinical Research Fellow and Medical Oncologist, WEHI) and Ms Kylie Shackleton (Deputy Manager, Parkville Cancer Clinical Trials Unit), who will summarise the key learnings from running tele-trials, including the operational considerations.

Presenters will navigate through the development of a supervision plan (found in the VCCC Alliance tele-trials toolkit)  required for both primary and satellite sites to conduct a teletrial.

In conjunction with WEHI, the VCCC Alliance Registry Based Trials Program has four open recruiting trials with many more in the pipeline. There is an increase in the conduct of tele-trials in Victoria with the VCCC Alliance tele-trials project and the statewide collaborative effort to streamline tele-trial operations.

The Registry Based Trials Program combines conventional trial methodology with registry systems to produce real-world clinical evidence. Registry based trials integrate the high internal validity (elimination of bias) of randomised clinical trials with the high external validity (applicable to a clinical setting) associated with enrolling real-world patients through a registry.
