Cardiology Clinical Trials are research studies through which improvements in the prevention, detection and treatment of heart disease are tested. Trials are designed to test how well new medical and scientific advances work in people.
The purpose of each clinical trial is to investigate scientific questions and attempts to find better ways to prevent, screen, diagnose and treat a disease. A clinical trial offers patients an option that may be superior to standard care or the best alternative after standard care.
Wollongong Hospital has been conducting cardiac research for over 20 years, conducting both pharmaceutically sponsored clinical trials and investigator initiated clinical trials. All research staff are well-qualified, experienced and trained in the International Conference on Harmonisation for Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) to ensure the rights, integrity and confidentiality of trial participants are protected.
