CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP For Trials and Translational Research Studies

Organised by the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre



Chris O'Brien Lifehouse Education Centre 119-143 Missenden Road, Camperdown, NSW

Course Aim and Objectives

This one day workshop will help clinical and scientific investigators refine their concept into a proposal for a clinical trial and/or translational research study. It will provide information, advice and guidance on how to develop a concept outline from an initial idea or clinical/scientific question by specifying a suitable aim, objectives, population, interventions, study design, outcome measures, sample size, analysis plan and funding strategy, as well as further tips and hints on developing your proposal into a funding application, letter of intent (LOI) or a full study protocol.

Who should attend

This workshop is designed for investigators (including clinicians & basic scientists) who have an idea for a clinical trial or translational research study or are suitably qualified individuals pursuing clinical research.
Investigators from any therapeutic area or discipline are welcome to attend.
As part of registration, participants are required to submit a brief outline of their proposed study. A concept template will be provided to attendees for preparation prior to the workshop.
Facilitating the development of proposals will be faculty from the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre (CTC), and may include a clinician, statistician and translational researcher. The program format will consist of a combination of presentations, exercises and interactive group discussions. Participants will work on their proposed concepts throughout the day and present them for discussion and feedback.
