Standard Operating Procedures (SOP'S)

Austin Health has implemented Standard Operating Procedures to achieve at the minimum good clinical practice standards in clinical trials and other clinical research. 

Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Good Clinical Practice (GCP) are based on those developed by our insurer, the Victorian Managed Insurance Authority (VMIA) in 2007, which in turn are based on the Note for Guidance on Good Clinical Practice(CPMP/ICH/135/95, an internationally accepted standard for the designing, conducting, recording and reporting of clinical trials). Compliance with this standard provides public assurance that the rights, safety and well being of research participants are protected and that clinical trial data are credible.
