Michael Rice Centre for Haematology and Oncology
Clinical Trial Research
Barbara Chamberlain and Nina Green
Data Manager's Clinical Trials
Summary of role:
The data office is the centre of research information in the Haematology and Oncology Department. We currently have 42 clinical trials open or temporarily closed to accrual and 13 studies closed but active to follow-up.
Clinical trials which are being conducted in the data office are coordinated through the Children's Oncology Group (COG); the International Society of Pediatric Oncology (SIOP), the Australian and New Zealand Children’s Haematology and Oncology Group (ANZCHOG) and the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH).
The Oncology, Bleeding Disorders and Central Venous Access Devices databases are kept up to date and are presently being reviewed to improve the quality of data available.
The future for us is to improve clinical trial recruitment, to do this we need to continue to educate all members of the Haematology and Oncology discipline and the wider community as whole to the benefits and the availability of studies. At the same time there is also the need to open more studies as they become available, so we can offer trial enrolment to all patients in our care and to the wider community of South Australia.
