Menzies School of Health Research invite health professionals to attend their upcoming five-day course Clinical Trials in International Health.
Clinical trials are a cornerstone of evidence-based practice in health. This five-day short course provides an introduction to study design, management, analyses and reporting of clinical trials. Participants are introduced to key concepts and requirements for ethical conduct and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) with a focus on international health trials. The course focuses on public sector and investigator-initiated research rather than pharmaceutical industry research.

This program is designed to cover the fundamentals of methods for clinical trials (including trial design, randomisation, blinding, sample size etc.), ethical conduct and GCP, design of data collection tools and data management, introduction to data analysis and reporting of clinical trials.
Topics to be covered include:
Day 1: Introduction to key concepts in clinical research and GCP
Day 2: Clinical trial design
Day 3: Clinical trial management, data collection tools and data management
Day 4: Data analyses for clinical trials
