These can be obtained from the Therapeutic Goods Administration website.
To support the conduct of clinical trials within the South Australian public health system, SA Health endorses the use of the following Medicines Australia Clinical Trial Research Agreements (CTRAs):
These agreements are all available to download on the Medicines Australia website.
SA Health participates in the Southern and Eastern Border States (SEBS) review panel to consider amendments to the standard Medicines Australia Clinical Trials Research Agreement (CTRA) template agreements.
