Clinical trials

Children’s Health Queensland coordinates and participates in a number of clinical trials aimed at improving health outcomes for children and young people. These trials include new drug therapies, innovations in surgical procedures, using new medical devices or existing equipment in different ways, combining treatments, and other adaptations to existing care models. These research studies help to improve the way we prevent, detect and treat childhood illness and injury.

Current trials and research studies

Multiple clinical trials and research studies are currently underway at Children’s Health Queensland. We do this to ensure we can provide the best possible healthcare to our patients. Parents and carers can find out more about opportunities to take part in suitable trials by speaking with their child’s treating healthcare team.

Other research studies may be actively seeking new participants from across the country. Some of these opportunities are led, or contributed to, by a number of research teams at Children’s Health Queensland, including:

Paediatric Critical Care Research Group (PCCRG)

Queensland Centre for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health (QCPIMH)

Centre for Children’s Burns and Trauma Research (CCBTR)

Centre for Clinical Trials in Rare Neurodevelopmental Disorders (CCTRND)
