A significant project to optimise Australia’s clinical trials

Share This Post


PRAXIS has secured a significant project and will work in collaboration with the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care to improve the confidence and capability of the clinical trials workforce in Australia.

The National Clinical Trials Governance Framework is a step towards consistent accreditation of clinical trial sites. PRAXIS has been selected by the Commission to design and develop training for assessors. Assessors will be reviewing Australian clinical trial sites against the new Framework from 2023. We are excited to be working with the Commission to educate the assessors, which will lead to improved safety and quality of clinical trials across Australia.

“Quality reviews assure quality outcomes, and accreditation assessments play a critical role in upholding Australia’s reputation as a high-quality research and clinical trial practice provider” said Sally Armstrong, CEO of PRAXIS Australia. “We are proud to be a part of this important initiative to provide high-quality education and training to help assessors to better understand clinical trial sites” she said.

The benefits to you and your team

After undertaking our high-quality training, assessors will guide sites through the accreditation process. Effective training and education will help assessors to appreciate the characteristics of each site. The training will focus on preparing assessors to identify strengths and opportunities and provide sites with the opportunity to optimise their performance.

As a reputable provider of education and training in the clinical trials sector, PRAXIS Australia has long supported the development of the sector’s workforce. Our programs are aligned with the competency frameworks of the Harvard MRCT and NHMRC and help organisations to meet the quality and safety requirements of clinical trial operations.

We are here to support your team with training solutions and help you prepare for these requirements. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss your training needs leading into the accreditation process.
