One of the core aims of the ANZCA Clinical Trials Network (CTN) is to build research capacity at sites to participate in multicentre research.

Contact the CTN manager to discuss the support provided by CTN and trial project teams to help you get started in multi-centre research and to deal with challenges that you may face.
