You can participate in our research by:

  • being a clinical trial participant and helping us evaluate new drugs, therapies, devices, systems, methods and tests
  • reviewing research processes and documentation to ensure it is relevant to consumers
  • assisting the research team with tasks such as administration, data entry and conducting surveys
  • representing consumer interests and priorities as part of the research team.

Ethical and governance review of proposed research and monitoring of approved research for all SMHS sites is managed by the centralised Research Support and Development Unit (RSDU) based at Fiona Stanley Hospital.

SMHS continues to be a leader in adopting digital solutions and promotes clinical trial opportunities via a dedicated app.

The ClinTrial Refer app is an Australian digital innovation that enables doctors and patients to independently search for actively recruiting clinical trials and to access trial site locations and contact details in real time.  

The app provides information for each individual trial, including eligibility and contact details, and:

  • can be used to easily search for clinical trials that match a patient’s health condition
  • ensures patients and clinicians can access readily current clinical trial information
  • allows clinicians and researchers to connect and collaborate.

ClinTrial Refer is free to download and to use for health care professionals, patients and carers.
