Australian Clinical Trials Education Centre (A-CTEC)

A-CTEC is a not-for-profit, Victorian developed, Australia-wide 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 aim of A-CTEC is to build the capacity and capability of the clinical trials workforce in Australia through easy access to world-class education and training opportunities, at no cost to the end user by:

  • Offering education and training that caters to the various levels of experience and competency of the clinical trials workforce, and is relevant to the needs of different settings that undertake clinical trials across metropolitan, regional and rural Australia (hospitals, medical research institutes, universities).
  • Ensuring A-CTEC offerings are interactive, practical, multi-modal and evidence based.
  • Providing opportunities for the clinical trials workforce to network, share learnings and engage in the co-design of A-CTEC activities.
  • Working collaboratively to share resources and expertise and reduce duplication in clinical trials education and training efforts across Australia.

All staff involved in clinical trials in health service settings across Australia, regardless of role or site, are invited to participate. This includes study coordinators, research nurses and clinical trial assistants, investigators, clinical trial pharmacists, HREC 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.
