Super webinar to deliver heads-up on clinical trials

Professor Steve Webb
Professor Steve Webb, a founding Director and Deputy Chair of the Australian Clinical Trials Alliance, will deliver a one-hour presentation before a peer-to-peer discussion.

Health care workers and medical researchers are invited to attend a free Australian Clinical Trials Alliance (ACTA) “super webinar” on 11 February at Menzies’ Royal Darwin Hospital. The event will provide guidance for clinical trialists regarding optimising their trials for implementation.

The webinar, which will be relevant to anyone involved with clinical trials or who has an interest in clinical trials, will start with a one-hour presentation by Professor Steve Webb.  

Professor Webb is a Senior Staff Specialist in Intensive Care Medicine at Royal Perth Hospital, and a Professor of Critical Care Research in the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Monash University.

He is a founding Director and Deputy Chair of the Australian Clinical Trials Alliance, a member of the NHMRC Health Translation Advisory Committee, and co-Chair of the Australian Government’s Clinical Trials Collaborative Forum.

“This webinar isn’t about the planning, design and conduct of trials to ensure findings are valid. Instead it will focus on describing those additional components that contribute to making clinical trials useful and will define the concept of ‘implementability’,” Professor Webb said.

The super webinar will be held concurrently at eight live locations in capital cities across Australia and New Zealand. The presentation will be followed by a peer-to-peer discussion.

The Darwin event will be hosted from 12.30pm on Tuesday, 11 February, by Professor Alan Cass, Director of Menzies School of Health Research, at Menzies’ JMB seminar room 013-014, Royal Darwin Hospital campus building, 58 Rocklands Drive, Tiwi.
