Welcome to the National Clinical Trials Governance Framework Pilot Survey

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) is conducting a pilot of the National Clinical Trials Governance Framework (Governance Framework) for health service organisations conducting clinical trials.

The Governance Framework aligns with the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standard 1 Clinical Governance and Standard 2 Partnering with Consumers Standards, and sets out the requirements health service organisations must meet to implement these Standards and achieve accreditation.

The purpose of the pilot is to ensure:
  • Health service organisations conducting clinical trials understand the intent of the Governance Framework (Standards 1 and 2)
  • The Governance Framework enables health service organisations to identify and address gaps in safety and quality of clinical trial service provision
  • The structure, sequence and format of the Governance Framework is logical and easily understood
  • The language on the intent of the Governance Framework is specific and clear
  • The Governance Framework can be implemented by health service organisations providing clinical trials and assessed for compliance to the actions within NSQHS Standards 1 and 2
  • Identification of additional resources that may be required to support national implementation of the Governance Framework.
Any health service organisation, university or interested stakeholder can access to the web-based tools and resources [insert link], and provide feedback via this online survey. 

The Governance Framework can be found here.
