AGITG Outstanding Site Award 2019

Congratulations go to Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital in New South Wales on being selected to receive the 2019 Award.

Naomi Knoblauch received the AGITG Outstanding Site Award on behalf of Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital. Calvary Mater currently has five AGITG trials open, as well as substudies for ASCOLT and DYNAMIC-Rectal. Notably, staff at this site have recruited double the number of patients expected for the ASCOLT study.

Calvary Mater is responsible for the management of the ClinTrial Refer Oncology NSW smartphone app, which lists actively recruiting studies at 38 sites across the state. This has led to more patients from private centres being referred to the site.
