Clinical trials are a crucial type of research to find new and better ways of detecting, diagnosing, and treating cancer. Clinical trials aim to improve your treatment options and your quality of life.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer, you may be eligible to participate in a clinical trial being run at The Border Cancer Hospital. We work closely with your cancer specialist should a clinical trials be your plan for treatment.
Each clinical trial is designed with a specific set of criteria for who is eligible to join a trial. These criteria may include factors such as the type of cancer you have, your age and your overall wellbeing.
If you’re interested in participating in a clinical trial, your cancer care team can search for a trial that is suitable for you. You can also search for suitable clinical trials through the Australian Clinical Trials website.
