Introducing the Investigator-Initiated Trials Toolkit

Want to get your own clinical trial off the ground, but not sure where to start?

MACH is delighted to launch the Investigator-Initiated Trials Toolkit in collaboration with the VCCC.

We have worked to collate knowledge, information, templates and guidance from across our clinical members. The result brought together a resource bank that we see acting as a launching pad for researchers to conduct investigator-initiated trials.

From idea to protocol, data management, trial monitoring and risk assessment, the Investigator-Initiated Trials Toolkit is available to all researchers to adapt for trials. You will find essential templates and guidelines, as well as instructional steps and definitions, to deepen your knowledge and insight.

Future expansion of the resources is planned over the remainder of 2020.


We hope you find it useful and encourage you to share.
