Call for survey participants: Putting a value on clinical trials

We would like to invite you to participate in research being conducted at The University of Melbourne. We are developing a method to measure clinical trial value and we would value your input.

Being able to measure and represent clinical trial value numerically, will help us to develop decision support tools for hospitals, universities and other institutions. This will allow us to improve how they choose the clinical trials they run. Improving the system will lead to better outcomes for patients and more efficient use of healthcare resources.

We are interested in hearing from as many different backgrounds as possible. We are interested in responses from clinicians, statisticians, health economists and regulators with experience in clinical trials. We also encourage responses from patients, consumer advocates and scientists (basic research) regardless of experience with clinical trials. If you are unsure as to whether you have the relevant background, we encourage you to complete the survey just in case.

The survey is completely anonymous, and you are free to stop participating at any time. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

The survey can be found at the link here.

The survey link can be forwarded on to any individuals you think may be interested in participating.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in contact with Piers Gillett ( of the Cancer Health Services Research group.

In addition to completing the survey, we are interested in interviewing anyone involved with cancer, whether that be as an oncologist, patient, basic researcher, or in some other way for more in-depth responses. You can take part regardless of your involvement with clinical trials. The interview would take approximately 45-60 minutes over zoom and can be arranged for a time suitable for you. Please get in touch with Piers if you are interested in participating.
