About ACTA

Mission & Vision


ACTA's mission is to promote effective and cost‐effective healthcare in Australia through investigator‐initiated clinical trials and clinical quality registries that generate evidence to support decisions made by health practitioners, policy‐makers, and consumers.

Our Vision

  • A healthcare system that delivers high quality and cost‐effective care through the systematic generation and application of evidence derived from clinical research.
  • For clinical research, through both clinical trials and registries, to occur as a routine, integral, and universal component of health care delivery.
  • For widespread appreciation and support by consumers, health practitioners, and policy‐makers for the critical importance of clinical research in Australia to improve practice and policy.
  • That all patients who require treatment for which there is uncertainty about the most effective therapy have the opportunity to participate in high quality clinical trials.
  • That the best evidence informing optimal health care is based on well conducted controlled trials of the effect of interventions on clinically relevant outcomes.
