Consumer Information

Are you a consumer or carer looking for more information about participating in research?

If you or someone you care for is interested in learning more about clinical trials, we invite you to explore this brief article. It contains essential information about the nature of clinical trials and key factors to consider before deciding to enrol.

Additionally, please refer to the ‘Is a Clinical Trial Right for You’ Information Sheet below, available in 18 different languages, for further guidance.*

At Monash Health, we conduct over 700 trials across a range of clinical areas. However, for a comprehensive listing of trials underway not only at Monash Health but also at health services throughout Australia, please visit the Australian Clinical Trials Registry.

If you are a parent or guardian interested in potential clinical trials for young people, please visit the Research at Monash Children’s Hospital webpage for more information. If you’re considering participation in a trial for yourself or someone you care for, please don’t hesitate to ask our staff for information on available options.

*We acknowledge and extend our gratitude to the VCCC Alliance for developing the multilingual information sheets for consumers.
