The ACTA Community

The development of ACTA is supported by more than 50 individual clinical trials networks, clinical trial coordinating centres and clinical quality registries.

These groups bring together hundreds of doctors, nurses, allied health and research professionals to generate evidence about which treatments work, which don’t, and which are most cost-effective for the Australian health system.



Check out this exciting speaker highlight for the upcoming ACTA International Clinical Trials Conference! Remember to keep your eyes peeled for the opening of registrations on 1st March 2019:
